Duke Bioinformatics Workshop 2012
This year's workshop includes new databases and experimental platforms that reflect advances in technological and scientific fields of research.
The four day workshop, open to non-Duke researchers, introduces new technologies and databases and has in-depth coverage of genome browsers, comparative sequence analysis, microarray platforms, proteomics and applications of next-generation sequencing platforms.
The finished sequence of the human genome represents an invaluable scientific resource that has greatly accelerated research. However, the bewildering array of genomic information, novel analysis tools and ancillary databases are difficult to navigate without being equipped with the skills necessary to make optimal use of the data. The purpose of the Duke Bioinformatics Workshop (DBW) is to provide its participants, graduate students and experienced scientific researchers alike, with the expertise to efficiently explore this myriad of information. The DBW is directed at individuals with previous genomics experience and has been designed to give a broad overview of topics relevant to innovative research with examples chosen by experienced instructors who use these data on a daily basis. The workshops will continue to provide intensive training in an environment that fosters close interaction between students and instructors.
The cost of this event is $250.00 for 1st year graduate students and $350.00 for 2nd to 6th year graduate students. For more information regarding other fees, please feel free to visit this website, for other fees for other attendee classifications.
