Advances in Genome Technology and Bioinformatics Course
Marine Biological Laboratory & The Institute for Genome Research
October 4 - October 30, 2005

http://www.mbl.edu/education/courses/special_topics/genome.html

A comprehensive, four-week course in Genome Science that will  
integrate Bioinformatics with the latest laboratory techniques for  
genome sequencing, genome analysis, and high throughput gene  
expression (DNA microarrays). A distinguished faculty from major  
universities, bioinformatic centers, The Institute for Genomic  
Research and the Marine Biological Laboratory will train students  
including postdoctoral students, graduate students and established  
PI's. This cutting-edge course will integrate a series of lectures  
with laboratory exercises both at the computer and in a high  
technology, high throughput facility. Limited to 24 students.

The major instructional modules include (1) Genome Sequencing (vector  
development, library construction, high throughput sequencing  
technologies, principles of automation using advanced robotic liquid  
handlers, genome assembly algorithms and closure strategies); (2)  
Bioinformatics (Gene prediction algorithms,annotation, database  
construction and searching, phylogenetics and molecular evolution);  
and (3) Functional Genomics (DNA microarrays, data analysis). In  
addition, we will sponsor symposia in topical areas in genome  
science. Examples of symposia to be offered include: Advances in  
genome assembly; Genomes and development; Genome science and  
environmental biology; Genome evolution; Impact of genome science on  
Drug design; etc. The breadth of topics in genome science and the  
advanced training based upon advanced laboratory technology,  
distinguish this course from all other offerings.
