Schedule for 1993 Cold Spring Harbor Course "Essential Computational Genomics
for Biologists". 03 - 12 November, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
Organizer: Tom Marr, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
Funded by the National Center for Human Genome Research (NIH/NCHGR).
The course is intended for molecular biologists who have modest skills in the
use of computers, but who have need to use computers to solve problems
associated with their research. There are limited funds available to help
defray the cost of attending the course. Applications and information may be
obtained from: Meetings Office, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, 1 Bungtown
Road, Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724-2213, Phone (516)367-8346, Fax
Evenings are reserved for students working on computers, using a variety
of computer programs that demonstrate the application of techniques learned
in the daily sessions.
This year's course will include the following topics in roughly this order:
Day 1: (03 Nov)
Dan Davison - Unix and biological resources on the INTERNET (various data
Day 2: (04 Nov)
