BroadE workshops bring researchers in the extended Broad community together so they can learn from one another. BroadE workshops (the 'E' stands for education) offer insights and share hands-on training in breakthrough technologies, high-throughput methods, and computational tools not typically found in conventional research labs. Through this ongoing series, which is open to Broad staff and to researchers at MIT, Harvard and Harvard-affiliated hospitals, the Broad community hopes to extend the impact of its science and openly share new methods.
New Registration System
It’s official — BroadE is a rousing success! In fact, demand is so high that our workshops quickly reach capacity, sometimes only minutes after being posted.
To meet this overwhelming demand and promote access to all in our community, we will repeat our most popular workshops during the coming year.
In addition, we will implement a new registration system for BroadE workshops occurring in June 2013 and later. Going forward, when a BroadE workshop is announced, we will also open a one-week application period. Participants will be selected from the pool of applicants who register during this period. In selecting participants from this pool, we will consider:
- the applicant’s home institution
- the applicant’s lab
- whether the applicant has participated in previous workshops
This new registration practice will help us to ensure that BroadE workshops reach a diverse, balanced group of Broadies.
Using Morpheus for matrix visualization and analysis
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn to use Morpheus, a web-based application for matrix visualization and analysis. Participants will learn how to interact with multiple data types (e.g. gene expression and mutation in a heat-map-based view) and how to cluster, sort, and filter their data.
Registration is closed.
Everything you always wanted to know about Proteomics but were afraid to ask
This half-day course will present essential aspects of proteomics of general interest to biologists and clinicians. Attendees will come away with a strong understanding of the important technologies and experimental approaches used in modern mass spectrometry-based proteomics.
Topics and applications presented will include:
|May 11||Registration is closed.|
This workshop provides an introduction to the basic principles of statistical genetic analysis for common variants typically found in genome-wide association studies. This course is targeted for individuals who are interested in learning the basics of genetic analysis. Specific areas of focus for the course include:
Registration opens Monday, May 18.
Registration closes Friday, May 22 at 5pm.
Connectivity Map 101
The Connectivity Map (CMap) is composed of ~1.4 million gene expression profiles. In order to effectively mine this database, the CMap team has developed a suite of WebApps and command-line tools. This workshop will provide an introduction to CMap and training on the most up-to-date CMap apps and tools.
Registration opens Monday, June 1.
Registration closes Friday, June 5 at 5pm.
Primer on Medical and Population Genetics
The Primer on Medical and Population Genetics series includes informal discussions of basic topics relevant to medical and population genetics by speakers drawn from across the Broad community. The target audience includes technicians, grad students, postdocs and established investigators just entering the field of complex trait genetics with the goal of bringing all up to speed on basic principles of human genetic variation, genotyping and sequencing methods, statistics, and analysis.
Please note: When the weekly MPG meeting is cancelled (due to weather, conflicting events, etc.) Primers are also cancelled.
September - January
