<b>On site</b> courses are offered at public locations, or at companies/institutions that hire us. The course on Jan 26-28 will be conducted at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, at the Center for Life Sciences (CLS 11081A, 11th floor)in the Longwood Medical area. The street address is: 3 Blackfan Circle, Boston, MA 02115. Residents of the Boston area are encouraged to take the "T" commuter/bus services to get here, those from out of town are encouraged to book hotels within a 5 mile radius and use the same services to get to this building. Otherwise, parking is available in numerous garages in the area, but cost about $30-$35 per day.

Contents

Objectives

This course will teach the workings of the dChip application and cover topics such as importing arrays, performing normalization, model based expression calculations, gene and SNP filtering, clustering, linkage, LOH and copy number analysis.

Instructors

Syllabus

Scheduled courses

If you are interested in an upcoming course, register using instructions below. (Access to completed courses is available to enrolled students only, because of privacy and confidentiality issues.)

Registration

Registration for courses at Bioinformatics.Org takes two steps:

Step 1
If you haven't already done so, create an on-line account to access the educational section of our website. Please note that the registration for our educational system is separate from that of the main website; you will require another account.
Step 2
Register for the course by making a payment using either the on-line registration form (click on the name of the course where it appears in the list of upcoming courses; use this form only for PayPal payments and credit card payments via secured PayPal), or by sending in the registration form (PDF; use this form if paying by US checks, credit card or corporate purchase order).

Please also check the course tuition rates and discounts.

Registration deadline: When full

Tuition & discounts

Live instruction held on-line
Live instruction held on-site
On-demand instruction held on-line

Additional discounts are available as follows:

Logistics

The necessary software, lecture notes and exercises will be provided.

Live instruction held on-line

On-line/live courses use the WebEx on-line meeting system. Access information will be provided prior to the start of the course. Unless otherwise noted, each lecture begins at 16:00 GMT and runs for about two hours, depending on the topics covered.

For those who cannot attend the lectures at those times, the lectures will be recorded and placed on the course website as AVI video files each day, within one day. Students will also be able to communicate with the instructor and other students via the course forums. Lecture attendance is therefore not required.

Since this will be an interactive, hands-on workshop, all attendees will need a computer with a broadband Internet connection (1 Mbps or faster is strongly recommended for those watching the live lecture), a sound card with speakers, a modern Web browser, and Java. A microphone and webcam are not required but may be used.

Certification

This course is certified by the Bioinformatics Organization, Inc., the largest international affiliation in the field, and it will count as 6 "Continuing Scientific Education" (CSE) units (one unit per contact hour) within the Organization. Students completing the course will receive a certificate attesting to that.

Refund policy

For any course type, if a student is not satisfied with the conduct or content of a course, they may request a full refund within the first two days of lecture. After two days but within a week, a 50% refund will be granted. After one week, a 100% credit toward another course will be granted. No refunds or credits apply beyond those stated here.

Additional information

Please contact us for questions or additional information.
