The Jackson Laboratory presents this graduate-level genetics course for predoctoral and postdoctoral students as well as established investigators entering the field of mouse genetics. The course focuses on the mouse as an experimental tool in cancer research.
 
Workshops will include: mouse genome informatics, laboratory animal biomethods (optional), gross pathology, necropsy and tumor histo-pathology. The intensive course offers a mix of formal lectures, discussion groups, demonstrations, workshops and tutorials. The course is held in a retreat-like setting and is limited to 35 participants to ensure a supportive learning atmosphere with exceptional interaction between students and faculty.

Topics include(preliminary list):

    Genetics of the laboratory mouse
    Tools for genetic analysis
    Developmental genetics and cancer
    Genetic models in cancer research
    Genetics of inbred mouse strains
    Spontaneous/induced mutants
    Lab animal husbandry
    Genetic mapping, physical mapping
    Candidate gene identification
    Statistical genetics
    Complex trait analysis
    Gene expression analysis
    Strategies in induced mutagenesis
    Bio-informatics in genetics and genomics
    Development, growth control and malignancy
    Mouse models for cancer research

Poster Session

There will be a poster session at which presentations by attendees are strongly encouraged. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please prepare a one page abstract to be compiled with others in booklet form for the course. Abstracts must fit on one side of an 8 1/2 x 11" page with 1" margins. It should have a title and author line.  The attending author's name must be underlined. Abstracts of your poster presentation should be submitted in a pdf file or Word document as an E-mail attachment. Abstract sbmission deadline is July 15, 2012
