> OBJECTIVE
> The Human Genome Project entails a worldwide activity aimed at studying
> the human DNA, the location of all its genes and their nucleotide sequences.
> Hence a massive quantity of data is being produced, whose reliable storage,
> processing and classification require the usage of more and more sophisticated
> bioinformatic tools.
> This workshop will review the most recent advances in the field of
> Bioinformatics regarding the analysis of biosequences.
> It will also identify future developments in, and uses of, new bioinformatic
> tools for fast characterization of raw sequence data with particular reference
> to the Human Genome Project.
