The workshop presentations covered a range of bioinformatics tools available for use through the Internet. Darryl Hicks & Carl Thomas are shown listening to a presentation.

Dr. Stuart Brown from New York University Medical School presented a lecture and lab session on advanced Bioninformatics tools that help determine the relationships between gene/protein structure & function.

Dr. David Scott and Dr. Sherri Clark (SWBIC) are shown discussing the molecular modeling tools available on the Internet for viewing biological molecules while Xiaorong Zhang listens in.
The workshop included lab sessions to allow participants to work with the tools being presented. Janet Greenlee (SWBIC) and Dr. C.S. Prakash (Tuskegee,CPBR) are shown assisting Quincy Lewis & Dr. Marceline Egnin during one of the lab seesions. Dr. Prakash is the director of the Tuskegee Center for Plant Biotechnology Research, the local workshop sponsor.
