The Center for Environmental Biotechnology (CEB) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville has worked with industry partner BioLargo Engineering to demonstrate the effectiveness of a groundbreaking technology that removes harmful chemicals from drinking water. Continue reading
Request for Proposals: UT Genomics Core Mini Grants
The University of Tennessee Genomics Core Facility, managed through UT’s Center for Environmental Biotechnology (CEB), is seeking short proposals for projects that require Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) resources. In collaboration with Illumina, a leading developer, manufacturer, and marketer of NGS instrumentation and supplies, the CEB provides sequencing services on a NovaSeq6000 platform for researchers that require preliminary data in support of near-term grant applications.
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 (email@example.com) ASAP.
If you have any questions about the training workshop, please contact Dr. Robert Murdoch, coordinator of the Bioinformatics Resource Center (firstname.lastname@example.org).
CORNET Awards Promote Cancer Research Collaboration Across UT System
Three research projects have won the University of Tennessee’s 2017 Collaborative Research Network Awards in Cancer Research. The monetary awards are designed to promote new lines of team-based research and collaborative partnerships among cancer investigators across the UT System in hopes these projects will ultimately draw external funding.
“This is an exciting collaboration between our principal investigators and institutions,” said Taylor Eighmy, UT Knoxville’s vice chancellor for research and engagement.
UT Receives Grant to Increase STEMM Interest to Youth in Rural Counties
Starting this fall, a new UT project will allow nearly every sophomore student in Campbell and Union Counties to spend several weeks exploring career options in science, technology, engineering, math, and medical science (STEMM).
The program will engage students in activities that help them learn more about strengths and interests and explore potential barriers they may encounter in attending college as well as career options in STEMM fields.
This project is made possible by a new five-year $963,000 Science Education Partnership award to UT from the National Institutes of Health.
