Announcement: Computational analysis of protein-protein interactions for bench biologists

June 5, 2012

Once again I will be one of the teachers on an EMBO Practical Course. This time we will be teaching wet-lab biologists about how to do computational analysis of protein-protein interactions. The course will take place September 2-8 at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany.

The course aims to help bench scientists become more effective at exploiting the wide range of commonly-used databases and bioinformatics tools that can be used to identify, understand, and predict protein interactions by analyzing their structure, sequences, and other features.

The target group for the course are experimental scientists needing to analyse interaction data in their work, and who have limited experience using bioinformatics tools and resources. The course covers analyses and tools that are applied after potential interactions have been identified. It does not cover analysis of the raw data from, for example, mass spectrometry.

To apply for the course, fill in the online application form. The registration deadline is Friday June 15th 2012. The course fee is 200 euros for academics and 1000 euros for scientists from industry.
