Learn how to use GenoCAD, a Computer-Assisted Design application for synthetic biology projects.
(PRWEB) March 19, 2014
The Peccoud Lab, based at Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech, is sponsoring a free webinar on GenoCAD, presented by OpenHelix on Thursday, March 27th, at 18:00 p.m. UTC/2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT.
GenoCAD is a Computer-Assisted Design application for synthetic biology projects, which was developed by the Peccoud Lab at Virginia Tech and supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. EF-0850100. The GenoCAD website enables researchers to generate libraries of parts that can be used and re-used to generate unlimited designs supporting bench biologists in molecular biology construction efforts. Grammars that specify the order of elements provide a consistent yet flexible framework for creating construct designs. In this introductory tutorial, the foundations of the GenoCAD system are explored, and basic functionality of the software is demonstrated with hands-on tasks.
In “Introduction to GenoCAD” webinar, participants will learn:
- the basic aspects of the site usage with an orientation and overview
- the organizational features of libraries and their component parts
- to use a grammar to create customized designs of expression constructs
- to run a simple simulation to investigate the behavior of synthetic systems
The webinar will held Thursday, March 27th, 18:00 p.m. UTC/2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT (for local time zones, check here: http://bit.ly/GenoCADintro). Register at http://www.openhelix.com/cgi/webinars.cgi.
