Reproducibility Workshop Series: Reproducibile Methods & Protocols Online
One of the barriers to reproducibility of research is the lack of detailed methods in the research environment and in published articles. This workshop will examine resources and tools to simplify and improve documentation throughout the research lifecycle and to ensure that methods and protocols are findable and reproducible. Please register below.
By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:
- Summarize tools and best practices for doumenting research methods
- Identify resources for finding existing methods and protocols
- Define the benefits of publishing open research protocols
Instructors & Presenters: Ibraheem Ali and Stephen Floor
Ibraheem received his PhD in Biomedical Sciences at UCSF and did a brief post-doc focusing on epigenetics and transcription regulation at the Gladstone Institutes. In his current role as Sciences Data Librarian at UCLA, he teaches data visualization strategies and best-practices for preprints and methods publishing to pre-clinical and clinical researchers.
Stephen Floor, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell & Tissue Biology. The Floor Lab studies the mechanisms by which RNA impacts human gene expression in health and disease. RNA chaperones are a major focus of the lab, which remodel RNA structures and RNA-protein interactions. We use deep sequencing, molecular biology of purified proteins, and imaging approaches to define the in vitro and cellular mechanisms of RNA chaperones. Many DEAD-box RNA chaperones are genetically altered in cancers and other diseases. We study the molecular basis of such alterations using cancer cell lines and genetically engineered stem cell models, aiming to better understand human biology and nominate new therapeutic targets or treatment regimens.
