Online applications are invited immediately from qualified individuals
for Internet Biologists' 2nd International Edition of Doing Biological
Research on the Internet (DBRI).


The application deadline is October 1, 1999, and enrollment is
limited. This advanced course promoting Internet literacy in the
biological sciences runs for 3 weeks from October 11 to 29, 1999, with
one additional week before and after the course for preparations and
evaluations. The course relies heavily on skills taught in Internet
Biologists' introductory course Bioscience Resources on the Internet


BRI enrollment is now closed for 1999. DBRI thus assumes a working
knowledge of mail lists, connecting to and participating in electronic
conferencing on BioMOO, and finding basic biological information on
the web. Applicants with equivalent web and electronic conferencing
experience are welcome. Go to the following URL for FAQs on
system/software requirements and BioMOO registration/connection


This year's edition will explore three themes: Online Networking and
Internet Communication, Building on BioMOO and Shared Resources on the
Internet, and Internet Tools for Sequence Analysis and Molecular
Visualization. The course is expected to benefit those doing
doctoral/postdoctoral research or working on industrial/commercial
applications in the biological sciences (particularly in biochemistry
or molecular biology), or teachers and administrators integrating the
Internet and biology into their curriculum. There is no fee for
joining the course, but participants are expected to spend a minimum
of 10 hours per week on course activities and a further 20 hours
contribution to DBRI or Internet Biologists' projects over the next 2
