Live and recorded events related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This JAX short course brings together world-renowned experts in addiction, human genetics, and mouse genetics. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on computational modules, the course features new methods and applications of mouse genetics to addiction; genetic and bioinformatics approaches to augment behavioral studies; and techniques for analyzing human genetic studies of addiction.
This live, virtual course is a modern survey of heredity, disease, genetics in experimental animals and humans, and molecular genetics in the diagnosis and treatment of inherited disorders.
The 2021 Maine State Science Fair is open to all students from all public, private, parochial and home schools (Grades 9-12) throughout Maine and is organized by The Jackson Laboratory and the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance.
The Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative Forum brings together the oncology community to provide updates on new and exciting developments within MCGI and the fast-paced field of precision oncology.

Join Drs. Cat Lutz and Qiming Wang of The Jackson Laboratory as they discuss the new hACE2 transgenic platform and answer questions from viewers. Recorded, April 6, 2020.
In this timely live stream, Linda Waterman and Rob Taft of The Jackson Laboratory discuss risk mitigation strategies and tactics that help scientists ensure their research is safe and ongoing before and during difficult times. Recorded April 1, 2020.
The Jackson Laboratory and Ellsworth Public Library collaborated to present an online program or the local community entitled, “From SARS to COVID-19: My Life With Pandemic Response." Recorded March 31, 2020.
The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, located in Farmington, is partnering with the Connecticut Department of Health, UConn Health and Hartford Hospital to provide the State with additional coronavirus testing capacity. Recorded March 19, 2020.
In this interview, Jackson Laboratory President Edison Liu talks scientifically about the origins of the virus that causes COVID-19. He also describes how a mouse model was developed to enable research into the disease. Recorded March 18.
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.
This live, virtual course will meet weekly for one hour, every Tuesday at noon from April 6 - May 25, 2021. Long read sequencing offers new opportunities for assembling genomes, characterizing microbiomes, identifying structural variants and RNA isoforms, phasing critical variants, and more. Participants will learn about advances in long-read sequencing approaches and novel applications of this technology. This virtual workshop will feature panel discussions about future opportunities for this field.
This course provides training in the theory and practice of maintaining mouse colonies for research. Participants completing this course will obtain a thorough understanding of colony management best practice that incorporates the latest developments and trends in the use of the laboratory mouse in research. Additionally, to help researchers achieve rigor and reproducibility standards when working with mice, this course includes instruction on experimental design such as how to control biological variables (i.e., mouse strain, gender, age, weight, health, etc.) and how to manage colony data.
This workshop will leverage the expertise and of the Model Organism Development for Evaluation of Late Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (MODEL-AD) Precision Medicine consortium.
