Ensembl Workshop
This two-day workshop offers participants the possibility of gaining lots of hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl genome browser, but also provides them with the necessary background information.

The workshop is primarily targeted at wetlab researchers.

Emily Pritchard of the European Bioinformatics Institute will give this workshop, together with Anja Thormann from the Ensembl Variation Team.

The Ensembl project (see at: www.ensembl.org) provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of, mainly vertebrate, genome sequences.

Most modules consist of a presentation, followed by the opportunity to do exercises. Participants are encouraged to bring problems/questions about their research to try to tackle these during the workshop using Ensembl.

Participation is limited to 24 participants due to the nature of the workshop.

The only prerequisite for this workshop is general knowledge of molecular biology / genomics and a familiarity with web browsers.
