13th Annual Short Course on Experimental Genetics of the Laboratory Mouse in Cancer Research

  June 07, 2004  
The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine
August 22 - September 2, 2004

This is a graduate-level genetics course for predoctoral and postdoctoral students as well as established investigators entering the field of mouse genetics. The course focuses on the mouse as an experimental tool in cancer research.

Topics include: Genetics of the Laboratory Mouse, Tools for Genetic Analysis, Developmental Genetics and Cancer, Genetic Models in Cancer Research, Genetics of inbred mouse strains, Spontaneous/induced mutants, Lab animal husbandry, Genetic mapping, Physical mapping, Candidate gene identification, Statistical genetics, Complex trait analysis, Gene expression analysis, Strategies in induced mutagenesis, Bio-informatics in genetics and genomics, Development, growth control and malignancy, Mouse models for cancer research.

Workshops will include: mouse genome informatics; genetic mapping; laboratory animal biomethods (optional); and tumor histo-pathology. The intensive 11 day course offers a mix of formal lectures, discussion groups, demonstrations, workshops and tutorials. The course is held in a retreat-like setting and is limited to 35 participants to ensure a supportive learning atmosphere with exceptional interaction between students and faculty.
