The website at http://protist.mbl.edu/genomescourse/ has been repaired.
> The following is an announcement for a new course in Genome Sciences
> that will be held at the Marine Biological Laboratory in October, 2002.
> If you would like to be notified about the availability of application

> Advances in Genome Technology and Bioinformatics.
> October 6, 2002 - November 1, 2002
> Claire M. Fraser, The Institute of Genome Research
> Mitchell L. Sogin, The Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole
> A comprehensive, four-week course in Genome Science that will integrate
> bioinformatics with the latest laboratory techniques for genome
> sequencing, genome analysis, and high throughput gene expression (DNA
> microarrays). A distinguished faculty from major universities,
> bioinformatic centers, The Institute for Genomics Research and the
> Marine Biological Laboratory will train twenty-four students including
> postdoctoral students, graduate students and established principal
> investigators. This cutting-edge course will integrate a series of
> lectures with laboratory exercises both at the computer and in a high
> technology, high throughput facility.
> The major instructional modules include 1) Genome Sequencing (vector
> development, library construction, high throughput sequencing
> technologies, principles of automation using advanced robotic liquid
> handlers, genome assembly algorithms and closure strategies), 2)
> Bioinformatics (Gene prediction algorithms, annotation, data base
> construction and searching, phylogenetics and molecular evolution) and
> 3) Functional Genomics (DNA microarrays, data analysis). In addition we
> will sponsor symposia in topical areas in genome science. Examples of
> symposia to be offered include Advances in genome assembly, Genomes
> and development, Genome science and environmental biology, Genome
> evolution, Impact of genome science on Drug design, etc. The breadth of
> topics in genome science and the advanced training based upon advanced
> laboratory technology, distinguish this course from all other offerings.
