The Proteomics Core Directors and Staff Workshop

April 4-6, 2017

The Proteomics Core Directors and Staff Workshop will emphasize new, cutting-edge technologies and approaches to discovery-phase proteomics that can be translated into practice at your home institution. Attendees will interact with faculty and presenters on a variety of topics such as experimental design for proteomics experiments, sample preparation, data collection, data analysis and data interpretation. Presentations will also cover non-scientific topics such as best business practices and writing shared instrumentation grants. In addition all attendees will receive hands-on training with liquid chromatograph and mass spectrometer operation in active learning sessions. This year’s active learning will be hands-on sample preparation, data collection and data analysis using the Thermo Tandem Mass Tag system.

Preference is given to researchers in NIGMS IDeA-eligible states. Only 15 slots are available and attendees will be selected for regional representation. Travel and lodging are provided to attendees. Deadline for application is February 1, 2017.

Workshop is supported by a supplement to the Arkansas INBRE (P20GM103429-15S1) and Oklahoma INBRE (P20GM103447-17S1).
Future workshops will be offered on an annual basis.

KBRIN Next Generation Sequencing and Data Analysis Workshop

July 10-14, 2017

The goal of this workshop is to provide training in skills that are central to the acquisition and analysis of NGS data.

Activities:

  • Learn about the challenges and rewards of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)
  • Acquire hands-on experience in the use of MiSeq NGS systems
  • Use effective and appropriate bioinformatic tools to analyze real-world, NGS data
  • Gain exposure to NGS/bioinformatic resources available at UK
  • Have the opportunity to develop collaborations with UK faculty and students.

Following the workshop, participants have opportunities to:

  • Access and analyze data generated during the workshop
  • Utilize bioinformatics tools housed at UK
  • Receive bioinformatics support from UK staff
  • Collaborate on NGS/bioinformatics projects with UK faculty

Cost:

Sequencing workshop is supported by the Kentucky Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network with NIH grant support (P20GM103436). The grant provides funds to cover participation costs for individuals working at educational institutions in Kentucky. Individuals from out-of-state may attend for a fee of $1,000, which covers registration, housing, breakfast and lunch.

Space available:

Space is limited to 30 participants, so apply early.

Eligible Participants:

The workshop is open to faculty and students from private liberal arts and regional colleges/universities and is targeted primarily toward biologists and/or computer scientists who are interested in NGS/Genome Science and subsequent bioinformatic analysis.
