Dear All I am pleased to announce that the first short course in Bioinformatics ?Biological databases & Access to the annotated genomes, cancer online resources and microarray repositories? organised by the Barts Cancer Institute Bioinformatics team is now scheduled for Wednesday 26 October 2011 in Sir Anthony Dawson Hall, Charterhouse Square Campus. More on website I should be grateful if you could circulate my email to groups within your department or Institute who may be interested in attending our course. Places are limited to 20 participants per course and on a first-come first-served basis. Please contact cancercourses at and register to secure your seat. Description This is a one-day introductory course to using publicly available databases. It aims to provide molecular biologists with basic knowledge on what information can be found and where, as well as how can the information be accessed/retrieved. A variety of examples of use, which a user might require for a research or PhD project, will be presented. Audience This course is aimed for students or bench scientists who need to use available databases to answer biological questions. No prior knowledge of using the available computer resource is required. Content The course is designed for beginner level and is structured to include both theory and practical exercises. EUR General sequence databases EUR Access to sequenced genomes: ? The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) ? The Ensembl project ? The University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC) Genome Browser EUR Query Systems: ? BioMart and Entrez EUR Specialised databases EUR Human genes and genetic disorders catalog: ?
