The Bioinformatics: Merging Biology and Computer Science workshop was held
on the North Carolina Central University campus October 21-23, 1999.
It attracted university faculty, staff and graduate students in the areas of
molecular biology and biochemistry, as well as faculty, staff and graduate
students from other North Carolina universities. This workshop provided an
overview of the bioinformatics/computational molecular biology tools
available for use over the Internet.
The workshop enabled participants to:
become familiar with the most commonly used nucleic acid and protein databases
and analysis tools on the Internet.
participate in hands-on computer labs to practice the use of these tools.
learn skills that will allowed them to explore and exploit the more specific
tools that may be useful to their own projects.
