BSDC 2004
Bioinformatics Software Development Course
January 13-15, April 20-22, July 28-30, November 2-4 2004

Following from the highly successful BSDC 2003 courses,
a new series of courses on 'Bioinformatics Software Development'
using EMBOSS will be held in the training room at Hinxton Hall
on January 13-15, April 20-22, July 28-30, November 2-4 2004

The course will give a good introduction to programming in
EMBOSS. By the end of the course you will be experienced
in all the steps in writing a basic bioinformatics application
using the EMBOSS programming libraries.

The course would suit competent programmers, probably
with at least a couple of years of experience. A reasonable
working knowledge of C is required, familiarity with pointers
is helpful but not essential.

The three dates are likely to get booked up very quickly
so please email Karen Hampson (khampson at
to register as soon as possible.
