Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for forwarding this announcement and call for application  
to whom it may be of interest:

Practical Course on "Bioinformatics and Comparative Genome  Analyses"
(http://www.pasteur.fr/~tekaia/BCGA2013.html): University of La  
Reunion, Saint-Denis - France, 6 – 18 May, 2013.


  The course will be organized within the frame of Run-Emerge  
objectives in order to train in La Réunion local, regional and  
international young scientists and PHD students in Bioinformatics and  
Genomics.
The course will focus on reviews on advanced fundamental algorithms  
and methods used in Bioinformatics and their applications in genome  
studies.
The course will involve genome comparisons, evolutionary analyses,  
phylogenomics and statistical methods needed in RNAiseq data analyses  
and Next Generation sequencing methods. The course program includes a  
series of lectures related to recent hot topics in Bioinformatics and  
Genome studies.
Practical sessions in a Linux environment will involve Unix and Perl  
scripting. Participants are expected to be familiar with this  
environment.
(Final programme:http://www.pasteur.fr/~tekaia/BCGA2012/ 
BCGA2013_Prog.html).

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 academic students will have free accommodation and meals and  
are expected to pay for their travel expenses. Selected students from  
the south western Indian Ocean region will be offered transport grants.

Candidates are advised to complete carefully the application form  
together with a "one-page CV" (see: http://www.pasteur.fr/~tekaia/
