November 11-14, 2003
University of Arizona
Tucson, Arizona

This four-day workshop will comprise a combination of lectures and 
hand-on laboratory sessions.  The participants will employ 
Arabidopsis 26,000 element 70-mer oligonucleotide microarrays in 
their laboratory work (for details of these arrays see 
http://www.ag.arizona.edu/microarray).  The course will particularly 
emphasize statistical issues in experiment design, and obtaining 
optimal results using oligonucleotide-based microarrays.

Specific topics to be covered include:

Experimental design.
Probe preparation and microarray printing.
Microarray rehydration and immobilization.
Target preparation, including RNA extraction, direct and indirect 
labeling, and amplification techniques.
Microarray hybridization.
Array scanning and data extraction.
Data analysis and archiving.

Registration is $600, which includes costs of the Arabidopsis 
microarrays that you will use. Participants will be limited to 20 on 
a first-come, first-serve basis.
