                   NUCLEIC ACID AND PROTEIN SEQUENCE ANALYSIS
                       WORKSHOP FOR BIOMEDICAL RESEARCHERS
                              Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
                              June 4-9, 1995



Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is again offering a five-day workshop on
"Nucleic Acid and Protein Sequence Analysis," June 4-9, 1995.  It is
funded by a grant from the National Center for Human Genome Research of
the National Institutes of Health.

The workshop will familiarize biomedical researchers
in applying supercomputing resources to
problems of concern in macromolecular sequence analysis.  Emphasis will be
on alignment of and pattern extraction from multiple sequences.
Participants will gain practical experience on PSC's Cray C-90 and T3D in
(1) comparing and aligning sequences, (2) identifying informative patterns
in a set of sequences; and (3) using extracted informative patterns to
identify related sequences.  Researchers will also learn several approaches
to database searching and  multiple sequence alignment, how to use profile
analysis effectively, and how to identify patterns in their sequences.
Participants are encouraged to bring sequence analysis problems from their
current research.  Extensive documentation will be given at the outset on
the PSC computing environment as well as on the specific programs
to be employed in the workshop.  No prior supercomputing experience is
required.

Workshop leaders are Dr. Gary Churchill, Cornell University, Dr. Michael
Gribskov, San Diego Supercomputing Center, and Dr. Hugh Nicholas, PSC.

A limited number of grants to cover travel and hotel accommodations are
available for U.S. academic participants.  ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED
TO PAY A $135 REGISTRATION FEE, IN ADVANCE, UPON ACCEPTANCE INTO THE WORKSHOP.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING APPLICATIONS IS FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 1995.
Enrollment is lmited to 20 participants.
