Core facilities are uniquely positioned to lead efforts to develop and optimize workflows for the generation of reproducible data, as well as to implement and disseminate these methods among laboratories.
Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to be inspired by recent scientific advances, as well as to gain practical knowledge on implementing methodologies today in order to support future discoveries.
Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics With scientific data increasing exponentially, it is imperative that the community develop tools to store, process, share, and track massive amounts of data among global collaborators. This award honors Prof. Bairoch for his outstanding career and his leadership in this metadata revolution. These are not just esoteric presentations of technology but often emphasize procedures and advice for integrating these latest applications into a core setting.
Meeting participants can expect to hear discussions of single cell sequencing, CRISPR applications, clinical sequencing, data analysis and other topics. In addition, vendor presentations ensure participants are kept up to date on technology improvements and new resources imminently available. This information is critical to allow core personnel to be pro-active with regard to new technologies for their institutions. Take advantage of the collegial environment to network and share ideas about instrumentation, reagents, methods and the challenges of running a shared resource.
Bring your sunglasses and come see the bright future of imaging. The program features groundbreaking research and methods as well as practical information and discussion for core lab implementation. With a recognition of the strong and varied experiences of our members, we hope to provide a venue for the new administrator and those new to core facility management.
There will be plenty of great sessions for the seasoned experts as well. Workshops and sessions will include: Planning, SOP generation, budgeting, and best practices; Sources of support for core sustainability; IT Solutions for Core Management; Career and professional Development opportunities; a gathering of other administrative organizations e.
Additionally, we are excited to announce our plenary Speaker, Dr. Come learn, contribute, network, and help our already stellar administrative community continue to grow. Trending topics provide coverage of both standard core offerings and upcoming and novel services not yet widely available but expected to have increasing impact. Some of the topics included this year are flow cytometry, 3-D printing, bioinformatics, and information technology BioIT focused on enabling core facility science.
Scientific sessions as well as more interactive workshop-type presentations allow ample opportunity for networking both among practitioners and for newcomers to speak with experienced researchers. Several sponsored prizes will be available across all disciplines. Posters are on display throughout the meeting, and will be featured during an evening poster reception with food and drink. This poster session is an outstanding instant networking opportunity.
As if all these benefits are not enough, you will also be given a bonus drink ticket for hosting your poster. Lively discussions practically guaranteed! The abstract submission deadline has been extended to Thursday, March 15, Submit your abstract today!
