Summer of Rat Genetics and Genomics (SuRGe) Workshop 2019
Registration is now open for the 2019 Summer of Rat Genetics and Genomics (SuRGe) Workshop! Spend two days in lovely Colorado learning about and trying out web resources for rat genomics including:

  • Rat Genome Database
  • GeneNetwork
  • GeneWeaver
  • PhenoGen
  • Omics Portal for Addiction Research
  • And more!

This workshop is sponsored by the NIDA Center of Excellence in Omics, Systems Genetics, and the Addictome (

Sessions will be separated into three phases:

  • identifying genomic regions of interest in rat
  • exploring a rat genomic region in the context of addiction
  • examining genes of interest for further biological/molecular/physiological/behavioral information.

Sessions will be led by content area experts and the majority of time will be spent doing hands-on activities.

All participants must come with a genomic area of interest in the rat and/or a set of relevant genes.

When: August 2nd and 3rd, 2019
Where: Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Fee: There is no fee for participation in the workshop!
