Techniques in Bioinformatics and Comparative Genomics
June 27 - July 2, 1999
Madison, Wisconsin
Offered by the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute (BTCI)

Objectives and Goals: This five-day intensive computer laboratory course is
designed to help participants construct a working library of bioinformatic
tools and resources. The format will combine lectures and interactive
problem-solving sessions with each participant working individually at a
computer. An emphasis will be placed on analysis of practical problems posed
by the participants. The flow of the course will move from traditional
sequence analysis techniques to the opportunities afforded by the imminent
flood of genomic information. Afternoon research seminars by the instructors
will sample academic and private sector visions of bioinformatics and
highlight creative approaches to utilizing genomic data.
