WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King announced this week that the National Institute of General Medical Sciences has awarded $118,838 to support Jackson Laboratory’s Short Course on Systems Genetics.
Held in the fall, the weeklong course is designed to accommodate scientists with a wide variety of backgrounds seeking to expand their knowledge of genetics.
“The research done at Jackson Laboratory broadens our understanding of complex genetic systems,” said Senators Collins and King in a joint statement.
The course will host biologists and quantitative scientists interested in sharing their expertise across research fields. Covered topics will include advances in mouse genetics, genetic mapping, network analyses and computational modeling of complex genetic systems. The course will be held from Sept. 27 to Oct. 3.
