Last week, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory hosted Annexins 2017. This international conference is held in a different location every other year, and CSHL was chosen for the 2017 meeting because of its accessibility, on-campus amenities, and proximity to New York City. Read what two of its three organizers – Katherine Hajjar and Jacob Rand – said about the conference.
We recently sat down with co-lead instructors, Mark Reimers and Pascal Wallisch, to talk about their biennial course on Neural Data Science. The course was first offered in 2015 to help neuroscientists develop conceptual and practical capabilities for analyzing large datasets such as those resulting from single- and multi-electrode extracellular recordings, local field potentials and electroencephalograms (EEGs), as well as two-photon and wide-field optical imaging. Read what Mark and Pascal had to say about the course’s importance to neuroscience.
Last weekend, we hosted the third CSHL meeting on Genome Engineering: The CRISPR/Cas Revolution. We met with Maria Jasin, one of the three original organizers and a CSHL meeting veteran, to talk about the CRISPR meeting.
