BSDC 2006
Bioinformatics Software Development Course
April 18-20 2006

Following from the highly successful BSDC 2003/2004 courses, a new
series of courses on 'Bioinformatics Software Development' using
EMBOSS will be held in the training room at The Wellcome Trust Conference
Centre on 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 so please email Liz Ford (ford at ebi.ac.uk) to register
as soon as possible.

We do not make a profit on the course but must charge #125 / person
(for the 3-days) to recover some of our costs.
We are unable to take credit card payments. The preferred method
of payment is by cheque made payable to 'Industry Workshops'.
If you wish to pay in cash or by bank transfer please contact Liz Ford
(ford at ebi.ac.uk)
