PSC Sequence Analysis Workshop - CORRECTED REGISTRATION DATE
mm6n+ at andrew.cmu.edu
Mon Jun 16 20:15:04 EST 1997
The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is offering a
NUCLEIC ACID AND PROTEIN SEQUENCE ANALYSIS
workshop, July 20-25, 1997.
This intense workshop will teach the basics of sequence analysis,
including remote supercomputing, database searching and pairwise
sequence alignment, multiple sequence alignments, pattern
identification, inverse structure prediction, and visualization of
macromolecular structures. Special emphasis will be placed on parameter
selection, and the mathematical and statistical properties of
the algorithms and methods presented. Information will also be
presented on the latest pattern identification techniques
including hidden markov models, advanced position-specific weight
matrix techniques and bayesan estimation.
The workshop will consist of both lectures and extensive hands-on lab sessions.
In addition to the lab exercises, participants can work on their
own research problems, with the help of the instructors.
Participants are encouraged to bring their research data, but not
