Annual Short Course on Experimental Models of Human Cancer

The course focuses on the mouse as an experimental tool in cancer research. It is held in a retreat-like setting and is limited to 35 participants to ensure a supportive, interactive learning atmosphere.
Topics include: genetics of the laboratory mouse, tools for genetic analysis, developmental genetics and cancer, genetic models in cancer research, genetics of inbred mouse strains, spontaneous/induced mutants, lab animal husbandry, genetic mapping, physical mapping, candidate gene identification, statistical genetics, complex trait analysis, gene expression analysis, strategies in induced mutagenesis, bioinformatics, development, growth control and malignancy and mouse models for cancer research.
