Please join us for Summer Bioinformatics at HSL.  Workshop and registration information is listed below.

 

Introduction to Blast -  The Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST)  is a combination statistical and mathematical equation created by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).  The BLAST suite offers a set of tools for identifying areas of similarity between various kinds of genomic and protein sequences as well as specialized BLAST tools for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), comparing sequences, identifying mutations, sequences binding molecules such as drugs and more.

 

Instructor: Dr. Diane Rein

Location: TBD – South Campus

Date: Thursday, June 26, 2014

Time: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM  Registration: http://ubtlc.buffalo.edu/workshops/workshop.asp?EventID=2013

Hospitals Put Pharmacists In The ER To Cut Medication Errors

Posted on: |

In case you hadn’t heard the great NPR story from earlier today I thought I would link to it here for easy access.  Read about Children’s Medical Center in Dallas has employed 10 full time pharmacists in the ER to help reduce medication errors and cut down on drug interactions that cause thousands of unnecessary deaths each year.
