The CCNE annual meeting was hosted by the NSBCC in Manhattan Beach, California October 19-22, 2009. Tutorials from that meeting are now available.
Tutorial Session 1: Capturing Human Genetic Variation on a Single Microarray: Interdisciplinary Skills and Cancer Research Tools
Speaker: Mickie Henshall, Illumina, Inc.
This tutorial will address the development of genomewide genotyping technology using microarrays. The theme of this talk is the value of interdisciplinary knowledge to bring together microfabrication, organic synthesis, molecular biology, and bioinformatics to produce a commercial scientific product (named "breakthrough of the year" by Science magazine in 2007).
