Machine learning is essential to extracting knowledge from data. It focuses on prediction that can be used to make decisions for future observations. Machine learning is widely used in the sciences, and can shed light on personalized cancer treatment, medical diagnoses, drug discovery, and much more. This one-day workshop features hands-on practice with the Python library scikit-learn. Our instructor will be Dr. Andreas Mueller, a research scientist at the Columbia University Data Science Institute and core developer of scikit-learn.
This intensive workshop is for those wishing to obtain practical hands-on training in mouse surgical techniques. In addition to surgical procedures, topics covered include mouse biomethods, anatomy, aseptic technique, suturing and microscope use. Surgical techniques covered include castration, vasectomy, ovariectomy, ovarian transplantation, adrenalectomy, splenectomy, thymectomy, nephrectomy and jugular vein catheterization. Participants completing this course will obtain valuable skills in multiple high-demand mouse surgical techniques.
This 4-day workshop will explore long-read sequencing technologies including Pacific Biosciences, 10x Genomics, Bionano, and Oxford Nanopore. The intensive program will combine a 2-day forum for scientists studying technology, software, applications, and clinical testing with 2 full days of hands-on bioinformatics and laboratory based tutorials.
This unique didactic/hands-on workshop provides a comprehensive overview of respiratory biology and, in particular, the use of mice as model systems of human lung diseases.
This workshop provides intensive training sessions in pathology and histopathology as well as didactic sessions on disease areas and mouse models.
This workshop will leverage the expertise and facilities of the Indiana University (IU)/JAX Model Organism Development for Evaluation of Late Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (MODEL-AD) Precision Medicine consortium.
In this intensive 2 day workshop, participants will be introduced to theory, experimental design, analysis and interpretation of microbial community analysis using genomic data.
During this one-of-a-kind workshop on mouse stereotaxic surgery, participants will learn how to: use different types of stereotaxic devices, read a Vernier scale, read a brain atlas and define bregma. Hands-on laboratory sessions with your own stereotaxic equipment include animal positioning on the stereotaxic device, intracranial drilling, intracranial injections, CSF collection, brain cannulation into the lateral ventricle as well as bi-lateral brain cannulation.
