Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for forwarding this announcement and call for application  
to whom it may be of interest.

Announcement and Call for Application to the EMBO practical Course on  
"Bioinformatics and Comparative Genome Analysis"
(http://cwp.embo.org/pc11-09/index.html) that will take place in the  
Institut Pasteur Paris, France, June 27 – July 9, 2011.

The main objective of this intensive course is to strengthen  
capacities of Phd students and young scientists, in Bioinformatics  
and large-scale genome data analyses skills.

The course will focus on reviews on advanced fundamental algorithms  
and methods used in Bioinformatics and their applications in genome  
studies.
The course topics will include theoretical and practical aspects in:  
large-scale genome comparisons, evolutionary analyses, sequence and  
genome alignments, Methods
for repeats detection in genomes sequences, orthologs prediction and  
classification, Genome data visualization and statistical methods  
needed in Genome Wide Association Studies.
Practical sessions in a Linux environment will involve Unix and Perl  
scripting.
Participants are expected to be familiar with this environment.

The topics that will be included in the course programme are similar  
to those included in previously organized courses:

The course is aimed at motivated Ph.D students and Post-Doctoral  
Researchers in Academic Institutions, with background in Mathematics,  
Statistics, Biology or Computer Science
and who are involved in Bioinformatics and Genomes studies.

Selection of participants will be based on their background, their  
running research projects and on their expressed motivations.
Selected students will have free accommodation and meals and are  
expected to contribute with 300 euros and to pay for their travel  
expenses.
All participants (students and invited speakers) will stay in the  
same hotel.
