The Center is creating training opportunities to increase the exposure of biomedical researchers to genome-wide RNA biology experiments with an emphasis on epitranscriptomics. This includes both "wet experiments" and computational approaches required for analyzing epitranscriptomic datasets. The Center’s goal is to increase the number of investigators who can apply epitranscriptomic technologies in biomedical and translational research.
VISITING SCIENTIST PROGRAM
In order to provide comprehensive training in m6A mapping technologies developed by the Center, we provide training visiting researchers so that they can teach others at their home institution. The visiting scientist program includes training in both experimental techniques as well as computational techniques.
SUMMER UNDERGRADUATE DIVERSITY PROGRAM
This program is for those who wish to work in Center co-I laboratories and gain knowledge by training in epitranscriptomics based research labs. This program provides students with hands-on exposure, and at the same time helps to increase representation of underrepresented minorities in genomics and epitranscriptomics research.
