CANCELLED- Gene Expression Analysis Workshop

Gene Expression Analysis Workshop **CANCELLED**

This workshop has been CANCELLED.

Sanford Consortium Auditorium

This event will bring together researchers from local academic institutes and industry that are interested in emerging experimental techniques and analysis strategies for studying gene expression. Advances in sequencing methodology have enhanced our ability to detect both different types of RNA and their dynamics, the effects of DNA mutation, chromatin states, and even the 3D organization of the genome, fundamentally changing our understanding of transcriptional regulation and the role of …
