Summer Workshops

The summer workshops provide an opportunity for faculty to collaborate on adapting bioinformatic and wet-lab modules for use in classes at their home institutions. The workshops also include a session on assessment of the modules. Faculty attending the workshop may bring a student along to learn the modules and be able to provide course assistance during the academic year.

Definition of ORFan –
GO term is “no known function” in either molecular function or biological process.  Other genes could be defined as appropriate for network involvement based on available information. ORF choice should be driven by the user, with suggestions and guidance from the network group as needed.

Instructional Design Module
Will focus on design of a semester-long pipeline plan for defining ORFan function that fits your institutional or curriculum setting. For example, making gene deletions concurrently with running bioinformatics modules.
