Hi,

  *************************************************************************
     Course in informatics for biology 2007 at Institut Pasteur
        http://www.pasteur.fr/formation/infobio-en.html

*************************************************************************

     In the series of courses offered at the Pasteur Institute, a course 
will be offered in informatics in biology. The next session will take 
place from January to end of April 2007.

     The main goal of this course is to provide researchers in biology 
an initial exposure to informatics. Admitance in the course is reserved 
for those with a degree in biology or a related discipline.

     With more and more bioinformatics tools available, it becomes 
increasingly important for researchers in biology to be able both to 
manage their data, implement their ideas, and judge for themselves the 
usefulness of new algorithms and software.

     This course will emphasize fundamental aspects of computer science 
and apply them to biological examples. Theoretical aspects (algorithm 
development, logic, problem modeling and design methods), and technical 
applications (databases and web technologies) that are relevant for 
biologists will be thoroughly discussed.


     Programming is presented through the object-oriented paradigm, 
using a modern high-level language, Python, provided with tools for 
biology and enabling both prototyping or scripting and the building of 
important software systems. Learning of an additional language (C) will 
be available for interested students.

     Learning during the course will be reinforced with computing 
exercises, and effective training will be provided by a 2 month research 
project.

     The working language of the course is French.
