Professional Development Workshops & Summer Courses in Biotechnology

The Biotechnology Program offers professional development workshops for DEB students and affiliated BLAST scholars throughout the academic year.  During fall quarter 2019, offerings included Science Communication, Science Policy and Research Funding workshops.  To receive notice of upcoming offerings, UC Davis doctoral students should join the DEB program or affiliated BLAST scholars group, which is also open to post-baccalaureate researchers, masters students, postdoctoral scholars and early career research scientists.  

We also offer summer technical courses on new biotech research techniques or data analysis approaches. An Introduction to R Programming was offered for the first time in September 2019.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, plans for an in-person introductory training in R programming for data analysis and visualization during Summer 2020 have been delayed.  Please contact the Administrative Team for more information, as specific dates have not been set at this time.
