Investigators contemplating or pursuing studies in differential gene expression leading to functional identification are invited to participate in OSU's comprehensive, hands-on workshop on DNA Microarraying. This entry-level workshop will lead participants through the processes and techniques for designing, printing, hybridizing, scanning, and bioinformatics analysis of spotted microarrays. This course is designed for participants with a working knowledge and understanding of molecular biology and molecular genetics theory and techniques. This course uses Windows-based computers. The cost of $300 will cover expenses for all instruction, laboratory supplies, use of equipment and printed take-home lab manuals. Course credit is available (OSU students only). A sample daily schedule (pdf format) can be downloaded here.
