Announcement

We are pleased to announce that "The 8th Japan-Korea-China Bioinformatic Training Course" will be held at the Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan, in February 25-28, 2009. This time we will also organize a "Bioinformatics Symposium" at which the lecturers of the training course talk about their original research topics. The trainees are expected to attend this Symposium, as well. If you wish to participate in this training course as a trainee, please apply now (see below for application)
