Transgenic Pig Production by Nuclear Transfer

Time: May 4-6, 2005
Location: National Swine Resource and Research Center at the University of Missouri
Lecturer: Randall S. Prather
Scopes: Goals of this workshop are to provide the attendees with up to date knowledge of embryo culture, transgenic cell manipulation, fetal-fibroblast derivation, micromanipulation, and swine management practices such that they have a working knowledge of the entire process of transgenic pig production by nuclear transfer.
Oligonucleotide Microarray Workshop

Time: May 8-13, 2005
Location: University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
Scopes: aimed at the goal of obtaining optimal results using oligonucleotide-based microarrays.
Fortran programming and Bayesian implementation via Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) techniques

Time: May 16-27, 2005
Location: Department of Animal and Dairy Science, University of Georgia
Lecturer: Romdhane Rekaya and Ignacy Misztal
Scopes: Although the course will cover the fundamentals of Bayesian inferences, it will focus primarily on implementation with extensive hands on experience. Our main objective is that course participants will be able to change existing code or/and write their own code to respond to their research needs. The number of participants is limited to 20.

Time: June 13-14, 2005
Location: Iowa State University, Ames, IA
Lecturer: Steve Kachman, University of Nebraska
C++ Programming for Animal Breeding
