Professional Development Workshop—Advanced Techniques for Genomics Research Single Cell Manipulations Using Laser Capture Microdissection
March 31, 2009, Volume 55, No. 27

The Penn Genome Frontiers Institute (PGFI) is offering an advanced workshop for University of Pennsylvania faculty members. This free workshop will train faculty members in single cell manipulations using Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM). Participants will get hands-on experience with manipulation of single cells using the Zeiss P.A.L.M. system. Workshop members will also learn how to isolate and amplify RNA from individual cells, which can then be used for microarrays or other genomic techniques. Participants may also be invited to bring samples from their own labs to use in the workshop on May 11–15, 2009, 1-5 p.m., daily at the PGFI Educational Facility, Carolyn Lynch Labs, 433 S. University Ave.

Penn faculty from any school may apply at the PGFI Educational Facility web page at www.genomics.upenn.edu/resources/research-facilities/cg.html by April 8, 2009.  Class size is limited. Contact: (215) 898-6107 or ef@genomics.upenn.edu .

PGFI is a university-wide institute dedicated to the advancement of the genome sciences at Penn.  PGFI’s mission includes advancing the development of new genomics technologies, facilitating interdisciplinary genomics research across schools, providing genomics training and educational opportunities to the Penn community and general public.
