Yariv Houvras, Assistant Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, will demonstrate how his lab leverages MacVector for experimental design and analysis. This software will soon be available at a discounted rate through the library scientific software hub, so come and find out how MacVector can help your research! MacVector provides numerous functions for DNA and protein analysis, including sequence editing, primer design, internet database searching, protein analysis, multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic reconstruction, coding region analysis, and agarose gel simulation.

SPARC: Achieving Successful and Productive Academic Research Careers Panels and workshops will discuss the importance of leadership skills, academic research, as well as careers in medicine and health professions. SPARC Junior was founded in 2011 to support underrepresented minorities and women in middle school, high school, college, or post-baccalaureate programs as they learn about and pursue academic research. The program also targets high school teachers, and parents of students in these populations. We aim to increase knowledge about translational science, health disparities, and leadership development.
