European Molecular Biology Organisation practical course:
Computer-based sequence analysis and molecular evolution

June 26th - July 1st, 1995
Universite Claude Bernard
Lyon, France

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.

Teaching participants:
M. Gouy, L. Duret, J. Lobry (University of Lyon), D. Higgins (EBI, Cambridge), 
D. Graur (Tel Aviv University), P. Sharp (University of Nottingham), K. Wolfe 
(Trinity College, Dublin), A. Bairoch (University of Geneva), Wen-Hsiung Li 
(University of Texas at Houston), G. Deleage (Ecole Normale Superieure, Lyon), 
F. Corpet (INRA, Toulouse).

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 
Biometrie, Universite Claude Bernard, 43 Bd 11 Novembre 1918, 69622 
Villeurbanne Cedex, France. Fax: +33-78-89-27-19   
E-mail: mgouy at biomserv.univ-lyon1.fr
