Dear Colleagues,

Please forward this announcement and call for application to whom it  
may be of interest:

Announcement and Call for Application to the EMBO practical Course on  
"Bioinformatics and Comparative Genome Analyses"
(http://events.embo.org/12-comparative-genomics/index.html) that will  
take place in the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, Naples - Italy, 7 –  
19 May, 2012.

The main objective of this intensive course is to strengthen  
capacities of Phd students and young scientists, in Bioinformatics  
and large-scale genome data analyses skills.

The course will focus on reviews on advanced fundamental algorithms  
and methods used in Bioinformatics and their applications in genome  
The course topics will include among others, theoretical and  
practical aspects in: large-scale genome comparisons, evolutionary  
analyses, sequence and genome alignments, Methods for reapeats  
detection in genomes sequences, orthologs prediction and  
classification, Genome data visualization, Methods and tools used in  
Next Generation Sequencing Data analyses.
Practical sessions in a Linux environment will involve Unix and Perl  
Participants are expected to be familiar with this environment.

The topics that will be included in the course programme are similar  
to those included in previously organized courses: http:// 

The course is aimed at motivated Ph.D students and Post-Doctoral  
Researchers in Academic Institutions, with background in Mathematics,  
Statistics, Biology or Computer Science and who are involved in  
Bioinformatics and Genomes studies.

Selection of participants will be based on their background, running  
research projects and on expressed motivations.
Selected students will have free accommodation and meals and are  
expected to contribute with 400 euros and to pay for their travel  
All participants (students and invited speakers) will stay in the  
same hotel.

Detailed indications are available on the course web site: http://
