We require a minimum of 10 participants for us to host a 2-day workshop. The cost will be $500 per participant. The workshop will cover the experimental and bioinformatic components of TILLING-by-Sequencing and serves as an aid for scientists who wish to apply this technology to their system.
Please contact the TILLING Lab to register for our next workshop. We are taking suggestions for topics you wish to discuss so please include them in your e-mail.
