"Design and Analysis of Plant Microarray Experimentation", a Short Course funded by NSF, will be held in Madison, WI during June 13-14, 2005, in conjunction with the 16th International Conference on Arabidopsis Research.

This course is designed to help investigators studying the genetics of plant traits to better understand and use statistical genetics methods, and thereby further their ability to meet their scientific objectives. It is aimed at established investigators, post-doctoral fellows, and advanced graduate students.

The course is two full days in length, and offers a vigorous interactive educational program designed to enhance researcher's ability to implement and, importantly, interpret the results of sophisticated microarray analysis in plant research.

The cost of the short course is $100 and include the cost of the text book (provided) as instruction. This cost not include the cost of food, travel or lodging.

Registration will be limited to 50, so register early.

A limited number of travel scholarships are available, with preference given to students and post-doctoral fellows.

Women, members of underrepresented minority groups and individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
