LAST CHANCE TO APPLY FOR THE EBI's HANDS ON COURSE:
A WALK THROUGH THE EBI'S DATA RESOURCES

REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 12:00 NOON BST ON TUESDAY 21 APRIL

For full details of the course and to register, please visit: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/training/handson/course_090511_walkthrough.html

Do you need access to information on biological sequences, structures, reactions or pathways as part of your research? Are you baffled by what's out there, unsure which data sets you're searching, or worried by strange and seemingly irrelevant search results? If so, this course is for you. The EBI's experts will walk you through Europe's main biological databases, explaining where the data come from, how we make sure that the databases remain up to date and comprehensive, and how to search them effectively. We'll give you plenty of opportunities to practice using them for yourself and to ask questions that will help you to solve your own biological data-mining problems. The course is especially intended for experimental biologists with no formal training in bioinformatics.

 

Data resources for the following research areas will be covered:

- genomics (Ensembl, sequence search tools)
- transcriptomics (ArrayExpress)
- proteomics (UniProt, InterPro, PRIDE, PICR)
- protein structures (PDBe)
- small molecules (ChEBI)
- molecular interactions (IntAct)
- pathways (Reactome)
- searching and mining the scientific literature
- RNA resources

The course will combine lectures and hands-on tutorials to help you actively learn and resolve biologically relevant problems. It will take place in the EBI's IT training facility at The Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.

The course has been insignificantly subsidised to keep costs as low as possible. Included in the registration fee are four nights' accommodation (11, 12, 13 & 14 May) and all meals and refreshments for the duration of the course. Accommodation is on site at The Wellcome Trust Campus, which is set in 55 acres of beautiful parkland a few miles south of Cambridge, UK.

Single accommodation £400
Shared accommodation £270

THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS 12:00 NOON BST ON TUESDAY 21 APRIL
