June 2009 Alumni workshop

Post by cshaffer » Thu Mar 19, 2009 3:09 am

GEP members,

The first alumni workshop of the summer of 2009 will be May 31st - June 2.

We need to start thinking about the next science education article and the upcoming HHMI competitive renewal. This topic has been created to discuss these issues and others that may come up regarding the workshop.

I would like to know if others would be interested in getting a quick tour of the Wash U genome center or hearing from one of the sequencers. The reason I would be interested is that I lecture often on DNA sequencing technology but have never had the chance to see a 'next generation' sequencing machine and talk to a user. My lectures would be much improve with a chance to observe a new sequencing machine first hand.

p.s. I started with Maxam and Gilbert sequencing in 1983 and would like to stay current with this technology.
