This JAX course will focus on the use of the innovative tools and methods, specifically in the laboratory mouse, for answering questions of neuron and circuit function and disease mechanisms during neurodegeneration. This course will employ both didactic and hands-on instruction in both laboratory techniques and bioinformatics.
Join us to expand your professional skills as you embark on a fulfilling science career.
The 5 day training program will include seminars, extensive hands-on data analyses, evening activities and collaborative curriculum development work.
Teaching the Genome Generation™ is a one-week professional development short course for STEM teachers.
This course includes daily lectures in the mornings and evenings as well as afternoon mini-symposia, workshops, tutorials, demonstrations and a poster session. There is special emphasis on student-faculty interaction. The faculty is diverse in terms of disciplines and the students in terms of stage of career and fields of concentration. This diversity makes for an enriching experience for all. Although the course schedule is quite full, there is time set aside to enjoy the natural beauty of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park.
The Cancer Short Course provides a broad survey of the cancer research and experimental modeling from systems and computational genetics, to the tumor microenvironment and tumor progression, to inflammation and immunotherapy.
Students will leave the course able to design and interpret genetic and genomic studies of addiction as they relate to their specific research question, and will be able to use current bioinformatics resources to identify research resources and make use of public data sources in their own research.
Advance your research in genetics by harnessing the power of the mouse! This new graduate-level advanced genetics course will provide a comprehensive view on the use of the mouse model in the modern era of genomics.
