The Biosapiens Network has established a Permanent European School
in Bioinformatics (ESB), which is held twice a year in a different
country every time. Next School will be held at the Biozentrum of
the University of Basel, Switzerland, from August 27 to 31, 2007.
The Permanent European School in Bioinformatics is intensive and
has a substantial practical component. Its intent is to give a
basic overview of the methods and tools available to the community
and will cover five themes:
• Protein Families and Functional Annotation
• Protein Structure Prediction
• Data Integration and Access to Genes and Genomes
• Systems Biology
• Microarray Data Analysis
The course is directed towards people with little or no experience
in computational techniques and/or in the usage of Bioinformatics.
