Bioinformatics II: Advanced Workshop
This workshop emphasizes cutting-edge topics in gene detection, gene
structure inference, problems related to use of multi-species ESTS, and
inter-specific comparative genomic analysis for gene detection. 
Participants will review the impact of new technology in sequencing
systems, using capillary or ultra-thin gel systems and cloning resources
in multiple species.  They will also study Internet tools, supplemented
by class surveys and problems solved in the classroom, which include
examples of powerful sequence database queries using GSDB and the BCM
Search Launcher for advanced database similarity searching.  The
material covered in class includes an introduction to the latest
generation of Java-based tools, such as the Java genome browser and
other Java applets for sequence, as well as a 3D protein structure
similarity searching as a supplement of similarity searching.
Topics include gene detection and structure inference, use of structural
information in similarity searching, multi-specie, ESTS, genomic
analysis, the impact of new technology in sequencing systems, capillary
or ultra-thin gel systems, and cloning resources in multiple species.
NOTE: Early enrollment is highly recommended, space is limited.
