BroadE Workshops

Demand for BroadE workshops is so high that they often fill quickly. To manage demand, we are continuing to increase the number of times we offer our workshops, and we have implemented a one-week registration period for all BroadE workshops. Participants are selected from the pool of applicants who register during this period.

Everyone who registers has an equal chance of being accepted. Registrants are given a priority number at random, and registrants with high priority numbers are put on a participant list. This list may be revised to ensure that BroadE workshops reach a diverse group of Broadies based on the following factors:

  • the applicant’s home institution
  • the applicant’s lab
  • whether the applicant has previously participated in this particular workshop
  • whether the applicant was previously waitlisted for this particular workshop
  • whether the applicant was previously selected to attend this particular workshop and failed to attend without notifying the BroadE organizers

We offer our most popular workshops several times throughout the year. If you are not selected to attend a workshop the first time you register, we encourage you to apply for a future session. 


Upcoming Workshops


Spectral Flow Cytometry
Day 1
Spectral Flow Cytometry is a new technology that encompasses both the high-throughput analysis of flow cytometry with the ability to measure the entire visible light spectrum of fluorescence on a single-cell basis by the use of prisms and PMT arrays. The morning session will highlight the advantages of spectral flow cytometry, how to design a smart panel for spectral flow cytometry, and the basics of acquisition and analysis. The afternoon session will dig into specific applications including a 7-color immuno-phenotyping panel, human T-regulatory cells, cell cycle, and fluorescent protein analysis.

Day 2
On the second day of the seminar we will be hosting one-on-one slots to talk about your own experiments and the design of your specific panel, or to get actual hands-on time with the facility's two spectral analyzers with your own cells or cells provided by the facility. The individual sessions will be limited. You will have the opportunity to sign up for a one-on-one slot during registration check-in on day one.

  April 25   Registration is closed
Primer on Medical and Population Genetics
The Primer on Medical and Population Genetics series includes informal discussions of basic topics relevant to medical and population genetics by speakers drawn from across the Broad community. The target audience includes technicians, grad students, postdocs, and established investigators just entering the field of complex trait genetics with the goal of bringing all up to speed on basic principles of human genetic variation, genotyping and sequencing methods, statistics, and analysis.

Please note: When the weekly MPG meeting is cancelled (due to weather, conflicting events, etc.), primers are also cancelled.

September - January
