Dear Colleagues,

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

EMBO practical Course on "Bioinformatics and Comparative Genome   
Analyses"
(http://events.embo.org/12-comparative-genomics/index.html): Stazione  
Zoologica Anton Dohrn, Naples - Italy, 7 – 19 May, 2012.

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 among others, theoretical and  
practical aspects in: large-scale genome comparisons, evolutionary  
analyses,
sequence and genome alignments, Methods for reapeats detection in  
genomes sequences, orthologs prediction and classification,
Genome data visualization, Methods and tools used in Next Generation  
Sequencing Data analyses.
Practical sessions in a Linux environment will involve Unix and Perl  
scripting.
Participants are expected to be familiar with this environment.
(Final programme: http://www.pasteur.fr/~tekaia/BCGA2012/ 
BCGA2012_Prog.html).

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, running  
research projects and on expressed motivations.
Selected academic students will have free accommodation and meals and  
are expected to pay for their travel expenses.

Detailed indications are available on the course web site:
http://events.embo.org/12-comparative-genomics/index.html

Candidates are advised to complete carefully the application form  
with an abstract of one of their works related to the course topics,
together with a "one-page CV" and a personal Identity Picture (Photo).

The application deadline is March 31, 2012 (European time).

With our best wishes.
