The Oxford University Clinical Research Unit, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam will be hosting a workshop - ‘Working with the Human Genome Sequence’ in December 2012. This workshop is part of the Open Door Workshop series of the Wellcome Trust Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences Programme.
The human genome is accessible to everyone who is involved in the present and future study of the human genome, including lab biologists, clinical staff, teachers, and other members of the general public, as well as other specialists in related disciplines. The purpose of the 'Open Door' Workshops is to enable participants to explore human genomic information that is freely available on the internet, and to understand both the strengths and the limitations of the underlying data.
This free 4-day workshop hosted by OUCRU, provides an intensive introduction to bioinformatics tools freely available on the internet, focusing primarily on the Human Genome data. Students will be given hands-on training in the use of public databases and web-based sequence analysis tools. All course materials will be available on the web and students will have the opportunity to ask questions of the instructors as they apply what they have learned.
The workshop is open to applicants from all over the Asia Pacific region. It is free to attend and bursaries are available to help with travel and accommodation costs (awarded on merit).
