Group Data Therapy Sessions - Biweekly on Fridays at 10:30am!
We welcome beginners and advanced users to generate a productive discussion. To get an idea of the group size (and your general interests) - we have a very quick survey.
We will be hosting our next Data Therapy Session for Open Consultation (bring your questions!) on Friday, November 30th at 10:30am in ESB 304. There is no meeting this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

ISG Networking Event - Next Week!
The Institute for Systems Genomics Networking Workshop will be held on Thursday, November 29, 2018, from 8:30AM - 2:45PM in the Wilbur Cross North Reading Room on the UConn Storrs campus. The workshop will feature brief presentations by new members of the genomics community, as well as presentations on new technologies. Our core directors will also provide brief updates at the workshop (Center for Genome Innovation, Computational Biology Core, Single Cell Genomics Facility). Lunch will be provided!
If you plan to attend, please register by November 20, 2018: https://isg.uconn.edu/isg_workshop/
Institute for Systems Genomics Seed Grants
The Institute for Systems Genomics is pleased to announce a new seed grant opportunity available to UConn faculty. This seed grant mechanism is intended to facilitate the development and submission of external grant applications by providing genomics data generated from one of the ISG core facilities: the Center for Genome Innovation (CGI), the Computational Biology Core (CBC), and the Single Cell Genomics Center (SCGC). These funds can be used to collect pilot data based on new or commonly used technologies, purchase user time on instruments, analyze sequencing data, obtain expert consultation on novel methodological approaches/techniques, pay for sample or data processing, or to develop key partnerships with industry or foundation partners.
CBC Office Hours at UCH on Tuesdays:
