A1 Experiments in genomics and proteomics
Seminar Room 2, Newton Institute Gatehouse
This will be four one-hour sessions by Terry Speed, James Brenton, Julian
Griffin and Andy Lynch.
Session 1 (TP Speed)
Introduction and elementary overview of experiments in genomics and
proteomics. For most experiments in this area, we can recognize three main
phases that are relevant to experimental design. I: choice and preparation of
experimental material, choice of platform technology; II: assignment of
experimental reagents to components of the technology; III: actual conduct
of the experiment, including times, places and conditions of experiment, and
protocols, reagents, operators and equipment used. In this session we will
mainly focus on examples where the experiments were poorly designed and
led to unsatisfactory outcomes. This will show the need for good design.
