EcoGen Fluorescent Marker Workshop

Today, martin_samuel and I attended a K-State EcoGen tutorial on GeneMarker, a software package for fluorescent molecular marker analysis.

The Kansas State University Ecological Genomics Institute is pleased to offer a workshop providing "hands-on" training in the use of GeneMarker software for fluorescent molecular marker analysis including AFLPs, microsatellites, and SNPs. The workshop will be held on Saturday, December 2, 9:00 to 5:00, in room 1302A in Throckmorton Hall. Dr. Paul St. Amand (USDA) will be presenting the training.

If you have ever wanted to add a genetic or population genetic aspect to your research, this will be a very useful introduction to the necessary tools. The workshop will include a one-day overview of:

  • the molecular biology techniques associated with developing and using fluorescent molecular markers

  • preparing and submitting samples to the USDA Genotyping Lab for fluorescent fragment detection

  • hands-on analysis and assessment of the output using GeneMarker


Maximum enrollment: 30


All in all, it was useful and informative workshop to Martin and me, if only to give us a hands-on experience with AFLP analysis and a high-level overview of SNP data and the data flow pipeline.
