 Past ISMB Meetings

ISMB 2002 will feature half-day introductory and advanced tutorials. The tutorials will be given on Saturday, August 3, prior to the meeting.  The purpose of the ISMB tutorial program is to provide ISMB participants with lectures and demos on either well-established, or new "cutting-edge" topics, relevant to the bioinformatics field. It offers participants to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, to get an introduction to important established topics, or to develop higher skill levels in areas they are already knowledgeable. The list and description of the 15 proposed tutorials are available below. Each half-day tutorial session (morning or afternoon) is US$85, and registration to one morning and one afternoon tutorials is US$130. Tutorial attendees should register using the on-line ISMB 2002 registration form.

Attendees will receive a Tutorial Entry Pass at the time they register on site. Tutorial handouts can be picked up at the door of each tutorial session.
