Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Course: Computational Genomics 

02-07 November 1994

This course is intended to be a comprehensive overview of the theory and 
practice of some of the major computational methods and tools  for genomic 
analysis. Topics for this year's course include tools for, accessing 
biological resources over the INTERNET, the analysis of complex genetic 
traits, DNA sequence assembly and coding sequence detection, protein evolution 
and analysis, protein sequence analysis and statistical scoring systems and 
interpretation of matches, multiple sequence alignment and sequence clustering 
techniques. State-of-the-art Unix workstations and computer programs will be 
used and made available to students. The course is intended for people with a 
solid fundamental knowledge of using Unix workstations that want to acquire 
significant skills in the area of computational genome analysis. This course 
is ideal for computer core directors and staff for molecular biology and 
genetics resources, for biologists wishing to acquire advanced skills in 
genome analysis, and for scientists from other disciplines, such as computer 
science and physics, who wish to gain an overview of the state-of-the-art work 
in this area.

Organized by Thomas Marr, (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory), William Pearson 
(University of Virginia) and Randall Smith (Baylor College of Medicine).
