EMBO course - 3D structure databases - uses for biological problem solving

 EMBO Workshop 19 - 24 September 2004
 Registration for this workshop is now open.

The course will teach the basic principles; aspects of 3D database technology and the associated tools for data analysis to bioscientists wishing to understand the wealth of structure information available. The course is primarily aimed at PhD students and postdocs to give them a familiarity with how structure data can be used in their own projects. Databases for 3D structural data for proteins and nucleic acids, together with the associated access tools have matured into a major tool for molecular biology. The course is intended to cover the background to relational databases and the computational aspects of characterizing structure of biological macromolecules.
