APPLICATION DEADLINE APPROACHING:

A WORKSHOP IN CEREAL GENOMICS
October 13 - 19, 2009,
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

Application deadline - July 15, 2009

*********************************

Workshop Instructors:
David Jackson & Doreen Ware, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Sarah Hake, USDA/UC Berkeley Plant Gene Expression Center

This one-week workshop in Cereal Genomics will enable participants to take
advantage of emerging genetic tools and the completed cereal genome
sequences of rice and maize, and emerging sequences of other species. The
workshop will feature morning and evening lectures with afternoon computer
lab exercises. The workshop will also provide hands-on lab work in the
comparative anatomy, phenotype and QTL sections in which participants will
examine samples and make measurements for statistical analysis to illustrate
the power of maize genetics and its relation to genomics. The faculty
(instructors and invited lecturers) are active researchers in cereal
genetics and genomics who have made significant contributions to the field,
ensuring that the latest techniques and ideas will be presented. The course
will be structured to provide time for informal discussions and exchange
with leaders in the field. Students from academic institutions are eligible
to apply for partial scholarships.

Topics:
The rice, maize and other cereal genomes, and their annotation;
Genetic mapping: linking physical and genetic maps;
Classical maize genetics and tools;
Comparative anatomy of the cereals;
Comparative genomics;
Cereals databases;
Quantitative trait locus mapping, association analysis and evolution;
Genome wide expression analysis- ESTs, microarrays and Solexa transcript
profiling.

Confirmed speakers: Lisa Harper, Toby Kellogg, Ed Buckler, Torbert
Rocheford, Blake Meyers, Matt Hudson, Jeff Bennetzen, Katrien Devos, Karen
Koch, Scott Tingey, Jean Philippe Vielle Caldaza.


This workshop is supported with funds provided by the National Science
Foundation, and students from US academic institutions are eligible to apply
for partial scholarships.
