  SIMS Tutorial: Mathematical Sciences in Genomic Analysis

The Societal Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (SIMS) will conduct a
three week tutorial on the Mathematical Sciences in Genomic Analysis.  Those
instructing the tutorial will will demonstrate how mathematical and
computational methods can be used effectively in genomic analysis -
particularly in connection with the Human Genome Project.  Tutorial topics
will include fragment assembly, informatics, pattern analysis of
molecular sequences, and DNA and protein structure prediction.  Serving
on the faculty is an outstanding group of scientists who will present many of
the interdisciplinary research activities central to genomic analysis.
Several days of background lectures will prepare tutorial participants for
the later presentations of senior tutorial faculty.

The tutorial will be held August 4-24, 1991 at Stanford University.  It
also will be held in the summer of 1992 at an east coast location.

This tutorial is intended for advanced undergraduates, graduate students
and post-doctorals in the biological and mathematical sciences who have a
keen interest in the application of quantitative methodologies to genomic
analysis, and who have had some experience applying such methodologies in
one or more scientific fields.

Each participant will be responsible for costs in connection with the
tutorial, including travel expenses and lodging and meals while at
Stanford.  However, funds are available to qualified participants for
travel and living costs for the tutorial.  Requests for financial
assistance should be stated when making application.

Application information is available from SIMS, 97 Parrish Road South,
New Canaan, CT 06840; phone = 203-966-1008; FAX = 203-972-6069.  Information
also may be requested from Dr. Craig Benham, Mount Sinai School of
Medicine, phone = 212-241-3690; FAX = 212-860-4630.

This SIMS tutorial is supported by a grant to SIMS from the National Center
for Human Genome Research, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health
and Human Services.
