Component Contact person: Melinda Dwinell, Ph.D.
Education Component will educate and train investigators who are
interested in using the rat model to pursue physiological genomic
studies in the areas of heart, lung, and blood.
There are two primary audiences. The first will
be physiologists and systems biologists interested in learning how
to utilize consomic animals and congenic animals. There will be
several educational forums. We plan to conduct 2 symposia per year
at national meetings, as well as an annual workshop. The symposia
will focus on teaching the benefits and utility of our PGA’s deliverables,
as well as bioinformatics tutorials. The second audience will be
geneticists interested in high-throughput physiology. We will offer
opportunities for people interested in this facet to visit and observe
how we conduct our physiology studies.
