MC-GARD : training course Array techniques to identify copy number variations at Biomedicum Helsinki

The first training course Array techniques to identify copy number variations will be given at the University of Helsinki at the Biomedicum Biochip Center in Helsinki.

The first MC-GARD event in Amsterdam at the VU University Medical Center (May 2007) revolved around the role of small and large sequence variation such as polymorphisms, segmental duplications, deletions and chromosomal rearrangements. The event played a crucial role in the integration and discussions relating to methodological aspects of emerging array, sequencing and (post-)genomic technologies for the study of the human genome variations. The first training course Array techniques to identify copy number variations will be given at the University of Helsinki at the Biomedicum Biochip Center in Helsinki. This training course is a practical hands-on wet laboratory course for early stage researchers. The course will focus entirely on the techniques brought forward in our first event, including arrayCGH for copy number variation and SNP detection. Emphasis/Topics High-resolution arrayCGH, SNP arrays, integration of array- based copy number and gene expression, normal copy number variation, arrayCGH in diagnostics, applications of arrayCGH in cancer and communicable diseases, ChIP-on-chip arrays, high-throughput sequencing. The participants for the training courses will be selected based on their CV with publication list, a description of their project including a possible need for the course in question and recommendation letter of supervisor. The host institution of the respective training course is responsible for this selection
