                                   for
                 Pre-Doctoral  and Post-Doctoral Training

                                  in the


    W. M. Keck Center For Advanced Training in Computational Biology 

		                  at the

                         University of Pittsburgh
                        Carnegie Mellon University
                                  and the
                   The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center


SCOPE
The program provides course work and research experience designed to prepare
trainees to apply and extend state-of-the-art computational methods within
the rapidly emerging areas of biomedical research.

Computational Biology includes:
				studies of molecular structure
				molecular dynamics
				gene mapping
				drug design and molecular medicine
