INPUT needed for 2017 genomics workshop 

Alaska INBRE is sponsoring a one-week workshop May 15-19 at UAA on Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) and analysis. The focus will be on hands-on computation skills needed to analyze NGS data. There is a possibility for additional classes on hands-on wet-lab skills needed to produce DNA libraries for NGS. 

Workshop leaders will be Drs. Brant Faircloth (LSU) and Travis Glenn (UGA). Methods that will be covered include: 16S amplicon metagenomics, CHiPSeq, environmental DNA (eDNA), genome sequencing, methylation sequencing, shotgun metagenomics, resequencing, RADseq, and RNAseq. We would like to use the workshop as an opportunity to produce tangible outcomes for Alaskans. Thus, we will work together on data generated from the 2015 INBRE workshop.  

So...what should we emphasize with hands-on exercises?  You can help us decide! Please take this SURVEY and submit your feedback by February 24, 2017.

News & Events

Please reference the Alaska INBRE calendar for upcoming events and important DEADLINES. 

eRA Commons IDs Required

The NIH now requires an eRA Commons ID for all individuals in postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate student roles who participate in NIH-funded projects for at least one person month (160 hours) or more. This information will be collected by INBRE for the NIH annual Research Performance Program Report (RPPR). Graduate students and post-docs will be required to complete their eRA Commons Profile, which includes demographic questions and educational degree information. RPPRs lacking this data will receive an error and the RPPR will not be accepted by the NIH. Anyone wishing to establish an eRA Commons account or affiliate with the University of Alaska must make a request to authorized personnel at their respective campus. To find out who the authorized representative(s) are at your campus, please email For the full notice, please see NIH Notice NOT-OD-13-097. The following tools for creating eRA Commons Accounts are also available: eRA Commons Personal Profile Overview (video) and Personal Profile Online Help
