Advanced Research Training Scheme

We run an Advanced Research Training Scheme consisting of a range of Techniques Workshops where small groups of students are introduced to state-of-the-art technology by the Senior Research Associates responsible for items of shared equipment on campus such as FACS, MALDI-TOF MS, Calcium imaging etc. This scheme also provides specialist training in a wide variety of other techniques including:

  • Advanced Epigenomics methods in our dedicated Epigenomics and Transcriptomics facility (established with joint MRC, BBSRC, and University of Cambridge investment) including RNA-Seq, Bisulphite-Seq, (h)MeDIP-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and various Chromatin Conformation Capture-Seq techniques; 

  • Advanced imaging techniques for high throughput FISH and and in vivo imaging; 

  • Advanced computational methods in Epigenomics (highly trained and proactive Bioinformatics team of five scientists who are actively developing new software and algorithms for Epigenome computation) and modelling approaches, especially with ongoing group leader recruitment in this area; 

  • Advanced genome manipulation (gene targeting facility), stem cell and developmental biology, and mouse genetic techniques.
