LiCor scientific reproducibility seminar – Lunch provided

When: Wed, March 21, 12:00 – 13:00

Where: Medford – SciTech 134

Due to the reproducibility crisis, guidelines for publishing experimental data, including those from Western blotting experiments, are becoming more rigid in scientific journals. In this seminar, we will address the sources of variability in Western blot data acquisition and analysis and explore how LI-COR’s technology minimizes variability and simplifies data analysis in Western blots, allowing for more accurate, reproducible data. We will also discuss new journal guidelines for publishing Western blot data and tools that can help researchers meet these new standards. From this seminar, researchers will learn the best practices for acquisition and analysis of Western blot data and which tools can help them obtain robust and reproducible data from their Western blotting experiments.
