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 
required.

Dr. Gary Churchill, Cornell University
Dr. David W. Deerfield II, Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
