Upcoming MacVector Workshops
From time to time we hold workshops around the country where we cover both basic and advanced MacVector and MacVector with Assembler functionality, adapting the presentations based on local requirements. These generally last from 90 minutes to 2hrs and are always completely free. Spending 2hrs in one of our workshops can save you twice that time in front of a computer within the first month. If we only had a dollar for every time someone said "Oh! If only I'd known I could...."
If you are interested in hosting a workshop, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in attending one of the workshops below, also drop us a line at email@example.com.
Current Scheduled Public Workshops
Thursday May 16th - NIH, Bethesda MD
10am - 12 noon. What can MacVector do for me? An overview of the basic functionality in MacVector so that you can understand if adopting MacVector in your daily life will save you time, money and reduce your headaches. One Cloister Court (Center & Convent) Rathskeller/Room 036 (basement). Campus Shuttle (Red) to ‘Blood Bank/Family Lodge/ Bldg 60/ Cloisters
2pm - 4pm. Detailed MacVector workflows. This is the workshop to attend if you have used MacVector and need some help getting the most out of it. We will run through some common workflows, such as annotating a sequence and getting the graphics to look nice, generating constructs using restriction enzymes, Gateway or Gibson/LIC assemblies, designing primers and confirming sequences with Sanger or NGS reads. We'll save time at the end for more advanced discussions and workflows that more experienced user will appreciate. One Cloister Court (Center & Convent) Rathskeller/Room 036 (basement).
