BSDC 2006
Bioinformatics Software Development Course
January 18-20, April 18-20 2006

Following from the popular BSDC 2003/2004 courses, a new series
of courses on 'Bioinformatics Software Development' using
EMBOSS will be held in the training room at Hinxton Hall on January
18-20 and April 18-20, 2006.

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 to get the most out of the course, familiarity with pointers
is helpful but not essential.  That said, all are welcome regardless
of background or experience.

Places are limited and the two dates are likely to get booked up
quickly so please email Liz Ford (ford at ebi.ac.uk) to register as soon as

We do not make a profit on the course but must charge £125 / person
(for the 3-days) to recover some of our costs.

    schedule is correct but details for talks & practicals are subject
    to change.
