PSC Sequence Analysis Workshop
mm6n+ at andrew.cmu.edu
Fri Jun 13 14:23:52 EST 1997
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
techniquesincluding 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.
