Wed Nov 3, 2010 : Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Workshop GEN

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Workshop
Wednesday November 3, 2010
14:00 – 15:30
Génopode Building Room 4026
From Keith Harshman :

Dear Colleagues,

I’d like to invite you to a Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Workshop to be held on November 3 from 14h00-15h30 in Genopode Building Rm 4026.   The focus of the workshop will be on the technical details of optimizing ChIP protocols and will be an opportunity to discuss the range of protocols that have been developed by local ChIP practitioners.  Please note that the analysis of ChIP-seq data is NOT the focus of the workshop.

The workshop will have an informal, ‘round-table’ discussion format to create an atmosphere conducive to the exchange of ideas and experience.  This will give everyone who attends an opportunity to share their experience as well as to listen to others.

To get the discussion going, 3 people who have spent considerable time optimizing ChIP protocols have agreed to present and discuss their perspectives on the technique:  Donatella  Canella (Hernandez Lab), Joëlle Michaud (Herr Lab) and Sunil Raghav (Deplancke Lab).

Please feel free to pass the invitation along to anyone in your lab who might be interested.

Kind regards,
Keith Harshman
