European Molecular Biology Organisation practical course:
Computer-based sequence analysis and molecular evolution
June 26th - July 1st, 1995
Universite Claude Bernard
The course will include data base access, similarity searches, sequence
alignment, protein secondary structure analysis, study of rates and patterns
of evolution, and phylogenetic reconstructions from DNA and protein sequence
data. Approximately one third of the time will be spent on informal and
research seminars and two thirds on practical tutorials.

The course is limited to 20 students. Preferred participants will be at the
advanced predoctoral or postdoctoral stage. Candidates should ideally be
generating their own sequence data and/or be in a position to apply these
techniques immediately to their own work.
Participation, including board and lodging will be free of charge. No funds are
available to cover travel expenses to Lyon.
EMBO requires preference to be given to participants from the EMBO member
states. Applications should include a brief CV (one page maximum) describing
current research, and a BRIEF statement of why participation to the course
will be beneficial. Applications should be sent to M. Gouy, Laboratoire de
