This one-day interactive demonstration of Internet resources for 
molecular biology is directed toward those working in the biological 
sciences, e.g., biobusiness,bioinformatics, bioethics, bioeconomics, and 
education, who need a better perspective on databases, software tools, 
and data analytical techniques specific to molecular biology.

All instructors are molecular biologists with extensive experience in 
bioinformatics and use of the Internet. All demonstrations will be on a 
large screen and graphics presentations will be in George Mason 
University's virtual reality laboratory.

Retrieving and interpreting information in genome-specific and 
macromolecular sequence databases will be emphasized--for example, how to 
query databases by text and sequence, how to find related bibliographic 
and genome-specific information, how to analyze sequences. An electronic 
tutorial on disk will be provided to enable participants to revisit all 
World Wide Web sites demonstrated during the workshop. It is expected 
that participants be familiar with the basic terminology of molecular 
biology, although not necessarily skilled in molecular techniques. 

Limited to 50 participants
