In May the Ensembl team will again provide a 3-day Ensembl Perl API
workshop on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton, United Kingdom.
Although this workshop is primarily meant for campus employees, external
participants are also more than welcome.

The workshop itself is free of cost. You should note though that our
campus is located a bit in the middle of nowhere and that you have to make
your own arrangements for accommodation and/or travel.

A similar workshop will be given end of the year at the University of
Cambridge (27-29 November).

For more information and to register please mail me (bert at ebi.ac.uk).

Time: 22-24 May 2013, 9:30-17:00
Place: Teaching room, EBI, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton,
Cambridge, United Kingdom
Instructors: Magali Ruffier, Thomas Juettemann, Anja Thormann, Matthieu
Muffato, Javier Herrero
Costs: none

The Ensembl project provides a comprehensive and integrated source of
annotation of mainly vertebrate genome sequences. This 3-day workshop is
aimed at researchers and developers interested in exploring Ensembl beyond
the website. The workshop covers the core, compara, variation and
functional genomics (regulation) databases and APIs. For each of these the
database schema and the API design as well as its most important objects
and their methods will be presented. This will be followed by practical
sessions in which the participants can put the learned into practice by
writing their own Perl scripts.

IMPORTANT: This workshop is NOT intended to teach you either Perl or basic
molecular biological and genetic concepts! To be able to attend you should
be able to code in Perl and be familiar with basic molecular biology and
genetics. A basic knowledge of Ensembl is advantageous.
