Xenopus Bioinformatics Workshop

Posted by on February 5th, 2014

This 7 day workshop is intended for wet lab researchers who want, at least, to extend their understanding of computational analysis tools and methods, but will probably also want to acquire grounded computational skills to enable them to work independently. They may be PIs, post docs or PhD students, but are less likely to be[…]
