For over 65 years The Jackson Laboratory has delivered annual in-person courses and conferences for scientists. From 21st century mouse genetics to modeling human cancer in mice, our courses are designed to provide critical resources, data, tools and services to researchers around the world.

For the first time, these courses are available virtually – providing flexible online attendance options for busy learners – using JAX Webcasting.

Webcasting enrollees receive a Canvas learning management system login and password, enabling virtual live attendance for the majority of lecture sessions. Recordings of sessions are available within 48 hours and access is permitted for six months following the conclusion of a course.
