Course Description

Programme This joint EBI-Wellcome Trust workshop provides hands-on training in the use of public databases for peptide analysis, annotation of subsequent protein lists using these resources, incorporation of information from molecular interaction and pathway databases, and the use of protein 3D-structure data in proteomics experiments. The workshop is aimed at research scientists with a minimum of a degree in a biological discipline, including laboratory and clinical staff as well as specialists in related fields. Acceptance will be subject to a selection process. Topics include Mass Spectroscopy Basics and MS Search Engines Sequence databases and their use Gene Ontology as a data classification tool Using ontologies to annotate data Standardising proteomics data PRIDE - The Proteomics Identification Database The IntAct molecular interactions database Reactome - placing proteins in pathways InterPro - identifying possible functions Protein 3-D structure data and proteomics Proteomics data and services integration The course is taught by trainers from the European Bioinformatics Institute Guest speakers Dr Kathryn Lilley (Cambridge Centre for Proteomics) Prof. Dr. Kris Gevaert (VIB Department of Medical Protein Research, University of Gent) Cost The course tuition fees are subsidised by the Wellcome Trust for scientists based in non-commercial institutions anywhere in the world. This is a residential course, without exception, and there is a fee of ?500 for non-commercial applicants towards accommodation and food for the duration of the course. The fee for commercial applicants is ?1500. Bursaries Limited bursaries are available for academics (50 per cent of fee) and are subject to open competition. Applications Applicants will be required to complete an application form containing a 300-word outline of the relevance of the course to their research. Please note that documentation supporting their application will be required from the applicant's supervisor/head of department. Bursaries for Wellcome Trust Advanced Courses The Wellcome Trust subsidises all courses and workshops, so there are no tuition fees. The ?course fee' for the UK courses (held at Hinxton) covers on-site accommodation and food for the duration of the course. Bursaries are available to assist with UK course fees, but not travel costs. We are committed to building scientific capacity in developing countries and are expanding the number of courses and workshops run outside of the UK (?overseas' courses). There is no fee for these courses and bursaries are available for travel, sustenance and accommodation. Please see below for full details. UK Courses (held at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton) A limited number of bursaries are available for each course. These are awarded by the selection committee according to merit. The bursary usually covers 50 per cent of the course fee, though in exceptional circumstances an application for the total course fee may be considered. Where there are many bursary applications, the selection committee may issue smaller amounts. We cannot assist with travel costs. All bursary requests to attend UK courses must be accompanied by a bursary application form. This must be completed and signed by your scientific sponsor (supervisor or head of department) and include justification for the bursary. Applicants will be notified of a bursary award along with their place on the course, usually within one month of the application deadline. We will reject incomplete applications. Both the application form and sponsor's letter must be received before the application deadline. The decision of the selection committee is final. Overseas courses (held outside the UK) A number of bursaries are available for each overseas course. These are awarded by the selection committee according to merit. There is no course fee.The bursary will cover travel, accommodation and sustenance. The maximum award for travel (in economy/second class) will be
