This practical, laboratory-based course is suited to PhD students and postdocs who would like to get more out of the experiments they perform and make sure their data analysis has a sound basis.
Participants will receive training in how to set up an immunological phenotyping experiment and will gain hands-on experience in a number of immunological techniques suitable for large-scale phenotyping. Using the data generated during the course, we will explore manual, semi-automated and automated analysis approaches and relevant statistics for different data sets and discuss benefits and challenges. All experiments will be conducted on samples from a knockout strain which the participants will identify at the end of the course.
The course will be conducted in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Mouse Genetics Project (MGP) and the Infection and Immunity Immunophenotyping (3i) consortium.
Application deadline: 10 November 2017
