We are pleased to announce that "The 7th Japan-Korea-China Bioinformatic Training Course" will be held at the International Center in Jeju University, Korea, in March 18-21, 2008. This time we will also organize a mini-symposium at which the lectureres of the training course talk about their original research topics. The trainees are expected to attend the mini-symposium, as well.

If you wish to participate in this training course as a trainee, please apply now (see below for application). The number of the trainees from Japan is limited to 10. The trainee is expected to be either a graduate student or a postdoc in bioinformatic or a related area who is fluent in English. In addition, the trainee is required to hold the passport which is valid for more than 6 months at the time of the training course. The deadline of the application is February 8, 2008. The successful applicant is covered with travel expenses including air and train tickets, lodging and meals. He/she is also provided with a PC linked with Internet during the course.
