All workshops are composed of a brief overview of the technique, an actual demonstration of all steps involved in the technique, and "hands-on" experience as time permits. All workshops can be expanded for an enhanced "hands-on" experience if requested by the partners of the ND INBRE on weekdays or weekends during the academic year.
Workshops will be filled with a 1st priority of one faculty member at each institution, followed by senior through freshman students at each institution. Individuals interested in the workshops should prioritize their choices since only one can be attended on Sunday.
