Artificial Neural Networks in Biology

The School of Pure & Applied Biology, University of Wales, Cardiff 
will be hosting a two-day Neural Networks in Biology workshop on 
the 21-22 December 1993.
It is open to all biologists, and no prior knowledge of neural 
networks will be assumed. Presentations, example applications 
from Ecology, Microbiology, Taxonomy and Biotechnology, and 
hands-on case studies will be used to provide practical training in 
neural network use. 
Comprehensive course notes and software will be provided.
