Please join Illumina in celebration of the first NextSeq Sequencer purchase in Puerto Rico! In honor of the NextSeq500 presence at University of Puerto Rico, we are sponsoring a two day Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Symposium and RNA Sequencing (RNA-Seq) Workshop.
Veléz-Valentín on PBS: "When we first began the work, there were 13 Puerto Rican Amazon Parrots. We didn't have a way to tag the birds we were studying and encouraging to breed. One of the scientists suggested we use polished beer caps and before we knew it, we had parrots named Corona, Corona Light, Medalla, Coors Light, even a Peruvian beer, Cusqueña. In fact, Heineken fell in love with Cusqueña."
For more than a decade, Lincoln Park Zoo has been working to ensure the survival of the critically endangered Puerto Rican parrot using science-based methodology. For the first time, Puerto Rican parrots now reside outside of the island and will serve as conservation ambassadors for the Puerto Rican Parrot Recovery Program, a multi-partner effort to save the species from extinction. Due to its commitment to this species, two male birds are now thriving at Lincoln Park Zoo's Small Mammal-Reptile House! www.lpzoo.org/blog/video-and-photos-wild-puerto-rican-parrots
There are important conservation efforts underway in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico to protect its endangered native wildlife from extinction on land and sea. Once home to ancient rainforests that covered the Caribbean island when Columbus first landed in 1493, centuries of development have impacte...
All of our undergraduates are invited to apply to this program. there is a very friendly review and we are specifically encouraged to apply. See specific on how you can spend a summer doing genome research in New York in one of the best Medical Schools in the nation
Please share this with the students that may be interested in joining our program:
REGISTER FOR BIOLOGY OF GENOMES CLASS (BIOL 4994/4991 Oleksyk/Martinez-Cruzado/Majeske) In this class you will learn about the newest technologies in genome analysis, and receive hands on training with the PCR-based and Next Generation Sequencing technology. In addition, you will be given introduction to LINUX and PYTHON needed to start your research project in Bioinformatics. This class is designed to provide a transition to the independent research in Genetic labs at UPRM. BIOL 3300 and 3.0 GPA are prerequisites. You will need a signed permission from Drs. Martinez Cruzado, Oleksyk or Majeske. You can get the permissions in B313, 314, 315 or F102, or by contacting me by email at email@example.com ...
