Course Summary

In association with the 7th European Zebrafish Meeting, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and ZFIN, we are pleased to announce a one day "Working with Zebrafish Genome Resources" Workshop (The workshop will run from 09:00 - 17:00 on Tuesday 5th July).

Each participant will be required to provide their own wireless enabled laptop for the duration of the course.

Each workshop is broken into modules designed to give a broad overview of a given topic with examples chosen by the trainers. The modular structure consists of a discussion of theory and methods, coverage of software and web resources, and a series of "hands on" worked examples. Time is provided in each session for participants to carry out their own research in the presence of the trainers, and participants are encouraged to bring their own problems (e.g sequence for analysis) with them. All materials used during the workshop series will be available on the Web, in the form of manuals and information. Zebrafish specific examples will be used wherever possible.

This course is limited to 40 participants and will be held in English.

The course manual will be made available as a PDF and will be sent out to participants one week prior to the course, and will also be available online during the workshop.

Please visit the registration page for further details and on-line registration or expression of interest in future workshops.

There will be a course fee of £35 for all participants. Participants will be expected to arrange and fund their own travel and accommodation.
