Biostats Boot Camp

Biostats Boot Camp is meant to provide a foundation and/or refresher on basic statistical concepts for students working in the Biomedical Sciences.  The boot camp will cover types of data, data representations (tables and several types of graphs), summary measures of data, measures of data dispersion, and basics of probability.  Each session will be conducted in the Nesbit Computer Room to facilitate practical application of these concepts with real data.

A CRISPR Transgenic Service

The Transgenic Facility at URMC is now using CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing to generate novel mouse strains. This revolutionary technology is much easier, faster, and cheaper than traditional methods of making mutant mice. This seminar will describe the services of the Transgenic Facility and offer practical guides for using CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing, as well as traditional transgenic and knockout approaches in the generation of mutant mouse strains to enhance individual research programs.

Please contact Joe Miano (joseph_miano@URMC.Rochester.edu) for more information.
