Course objectives:

        The course will provide to participants a current view of several
applications of synthetic oligonucleotides in molecular biology. Many
advanced topics will be covered and for a set of them, experimental
sessions will teach important practical details to apply this technologies
to real problem solving.


Applications:

        The course is open to scientists from ICGEB Member Countries nomi-
nated through their National Scientific Focal Point. Direct applications
will also be considered. Registration is limited to 15 participants. The
participation requirements include sound knowledge of biochemistry, molecular
biology, and involvement in research related to the course material.

        Applicants should submitt curriculum vitae and a short account of the
course relevance to their current research work to:
