JAX releases new online minicourses to address research challenges
By Joseph Blanchette
In today’s scientific research community, the expectation is to be up to date on current technologies, research and breakthroughs.
The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) recognized the need to meet this challenge and is now offering a customized solution, the newly created JAX Online Minicourses & Certificates.
This new program allows you to access content from JAX’s leading scientists and world-class faculty at the touch of a fingertip.
JAX is excited to announce the release of two new online courses:
- Diversity Outbred Mice provides an overview of genetically diverse mouse models, the Collaborative Cross (CC) and the Diversity Outbred (DO).
- Cre-lox Technology in Mouse Modeling is an introduction to using the Cre-lox system to genetically engineer mice for human disease modeling.
Hundreds of learners have accessed our online MiniCourses, which provide digital, on-demand access to educational modules based on our renowned in-person Courses, Conferences and Workshops. An easy-to-use online interface enables students to proceed at their own pace.
For a limited time, JAX is offering free access to the first online MiniCourse we released, History and Development of the Mouse Model System. MiniCourses are planned in everything from the basics of mouse genetics to CRISPR, so stay tuned for the release of additional modules and programs in 2018.
