EMBL


The European Molecular Biology Laboratory, one of the world's top research institutions, is dedicated to basic research in the molecular life sciences. EMBL is funded by public research monies from 20 member states - Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and an associate member state, Australia.
Advanced Training is one of the core missions of the EMBL since its creation in 1974. Aiming at the promotion of excellence in modern life sciences and providing valuable services to its Member States and the international scientific community, EMBL has build a tradition and extensive expertise in organising and hosting advanced conferences, courses and workshops.

Scientific Programming and Data Visualization for Structural Biology Practical Course:
The Practical Course on Scientific Programming and Data Visualization was developed at Harvard where it was offered for the last two years. In 2010, for the first time, it will move to Heidelberg, allowing 45 European students to participate. The course is designed primarily for structural biologists, but scientists from other disciplines are welcome to apply. The goals of the course are to to allow students to learn and master computational skills that are frequently required in less routine projects and to learn methods of data visualization. Joint lecture sessions and three parallel tutorial tracks will be offered: Scientific Programming with Python, OSX Programming and Molecular Visualization with Maya. As part of the course, we ask students to prepare a project proposal that is relevant for their own research area.

Registration and Payment

Please register online.


Deadline for registration is 17 January 2010.


This course has 45 places. There will be a two stage application process involving entering your contact data and then a letter of motivation. You should decide at the point of application which group you would like to be part of:

1. Python: As a part of the application, we ask students to prepare a short statement (no more than 2000 characters) detailing the main applications they currently use for their research, the programs they use to process and analyze data, and a proposal for new tools that they would like to develop using Python, which would address an outstanding need.


2. Maya: As a part of the application, we ask students to prepare a short proposal (no more than 2000 characters) that outlines how they would like to use Maya for their scientific research.


3. OSX: As a part of the application, we ask students to prepare a short statement (no more than 2000 characters) detailing their current programming proficiency, what they know about OSX programming, and what they expect to learn and be able to accomplish after taking this course.

The cost of the course is 250 EUR including 3 nights accommodation in the ISG hotel, course material and food during the course.


Accommodation and Transport

Hotel

3 nights accommodation in a twin room (is included) in the participation fee for the default dates of Tuesday, 4 May - Friday, 7 May 2010. Rooms have been reserved at the ISG Hotel.
All additional nights (beyond the 3 nights twin room paid by EMBL) will be charged extra (approx. EUR 75 per night for single accommodation and EUR 100 for twin accommodation).
Local Transport

Shuttle buses will go from designated bus stops near the hotels to EMBL and back, mornings and evenings. The schedule and location of the bus stops will be available before the meeting.

The course will take place in the Advanced Training Centre (ATC) on the EMBL campus.
