Plant biologists- here are some great opportunities for students and postdocs (and faculty) to learn some highly useful computational skills in a short, 1 week, setting, at UC Davis (Davis, CA, where tons of plant biology research takes place)
- Cost for a week of workshop and dorms = about $US 750 total including breakfasts and dinner.
- A great chance to learn, for an inexpensive price… and bonus- possible networking opportunities with the local Plant biology people!
- Note housing registration closes April 26th (next week) so move fast.

separately. Attendees of both weeks of workshops may book housing for
both weeks, and attendees of the two-week introductory bioinformatics
workshop, ANGUS (http://ivory.idyll.org/dibsi/ANGUS.html) may book
a full four weeks of housing.
