From email@example.com Fri Jun 13 15:48:44 1997 From: Marcela Madrid <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: 97.07.20 PSC Sequence Analysis Workshop The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is offering a NUCLEIC ACID AND PROTEIN SEQUENCE ANALYSIS workshop, July 20-25, 1997. This intense workshop will teach the basics of sequence analysis, including remote supercomputing, database searching and pairwise sequence alignment, multiple sequence alignments, pattern identification, inverse structure prediction, and visualization of macromolecular structures. Special emphasis will be placed on parameter selection, and the mathematical and statistical properties of the algorithms and methods presented. Information will also be presented on the latest pattern identification techniquesincluding hidden markov models, advanced position-specific weight matrix techniques and bayesan estimation. The workshop will consist of both lectures and extensive hands-on lab sessions. In addition to the lab exercises, participants can work on their own research problems, with the help of the instructors. Participants are encouraged to bring their research data, but not required.
