ORE’s Research Development seeks to facilitate a multidisciplinary conversation between researchers who are tapping the benefits of eye-tracking technology and those who might be interested in new collaborations.
Register for SBIR Workshop
ORE has partnered with LaunchTN and the UT Research Foundation to host a workshop about the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. SBIR is a highly competitive federal program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in research and development that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization.
Friday, June 21, from 9 a.m.–12 p.m. in Strong Hall, Room 126.
Register for this workshop to get in-depth exposure to federal grant funding opportunities and learn of resources specifically available to Tennesseans.
There will be the opportunity to sign up for one-on-one meetings with an SBIR consultant, to be held immediately following the workshop. More details will be provided at the workshop.
Please direct questions about this workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Intro to iThenticate Workshops Announced
The Office of Research and Engagement announces five one-time training workshops that will serve as an introduction to iThenticate, a plagiarism checker software that verifies the originality of written work.
We will discuss how to submit papers, the format of those papers, setting exclusions for the report, reading the report, and protocols on sharing that information with colleagues. Participants will leave with the knowledge of how to use iThenticate, what iThenticate is used for, and how to read the iThenticate report.
Attendees can bring a laptop and a digital example paper to follow along, but it is not required.
Workshops are limited to 40 attendees. All workshops will be in A004 Blount Hall. Zoom information is provided in the registration links below for those who cannot attend in person.
Please contact Donna Ford (email@example.com) with any questions.
CLC Genomics Workbench Training
The Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC) in the Center for Environmental Biotechnology (CEB) will be hosting a CLC Genomics Workbench training session from 9 AM to 5 PM, July 20, 2017 in 404 Min Kao (MHK). CLC Genomics Workbench is a powerful and comprehensive bioinformatics software package for nucleic acid sequence analysis. The session will be conducted by expert trainers from Qiagen, the makers of CLC. The trainers will guide participants through many of the bioinformatics analysis pipelines offered by CLC Genomics Workbench, from importing, filtering, and assembling raw sequencing data towards several downstream pipelines for genomics, metagenomics, and transcriptomics applications.
Seating may be limited, so please sign up early.
Please RSVP Renee Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP.
If you have any questions about the training workshop, please contact Dr. Robert Murdoch, coordinator of the Bioinformatics Resource Center (email@example.com).
