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.
Public small-molecule databases: Chembank, Pubchem, BARD, and
Several bioassay data-storage and data-analysis systems exist that provide public access to chemical biology, computational chemistry, and bioinformatics resources. The development of these resources has undergone multiple generations of refinement in terms of data structure, data sources, and analytic capabilities. This course will briefly cover the evolution of these resources, highlighting aspects of each, then will focus on use cases for the more modern systems. This will include a focus on one of the most recent systems, the BioAssay Research Database (BARD), developed in part by a team from the Broad. Interactive demonstrations on data capture and data mining will be included. Participants are encouraged to bring information on a sample bioactive small molecule of interest to their research to be used in the interactive portion of the class. If time allows and depending on participant interest, methods for acquiring physical samples of small molecules may also be covered.

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.
