A1 Experiments in genomics and proteomics

Speed, TP (University of California at Berkeley)
Wednesday 23 July 2008, 11:30-12:30

Seminar Room 2, Newton Institute Gatehouse


This will be four one-hour sessions by Terry Speed, James Brenton, Julian Griffin and Andy Lynch. Session 1 (TP Speed) Introduction and elementary overview of experiments in genomics and proteomics. For most experiments in this area, we can recognize three main phases that are relevant to experimental design. I: choice and preparation of experimental material, choice of platform technology; II: assignment of experimental reagents to components of the technology; III: actual conduct of the experiment, including times, places and conditions of experiment, and protocols, reagents, operators and equipment used. In this session we will mainly focus on examples where the experiments were poorly designed and led to unsatisfactory outcomes. This will show the need for good design.
