Bioinformatics 2002: A Neuroscientist's Guide to Tools and Techniques for Mining and Refining Massive Data Sets

Organized by Robert W. Williams, PhD & Dan Goldowitz, PhD

A Society for Neuroscience short course presented at NEUROSCIENCE 2002
List of Contents



Bioinformatic resources have matured rapidly and are now having a profound impact on many facets of neuroscience. Well-annotated full genome sequence data, information on networks of genes and proteins, morphometric and electrophysiological databases devoted to whole brains, individual nuclei, and even single cells and synapses are being integrate with decades worth of research. Neuroscientists need to learn how to navigate through these hypotheses of CNS development, structure, and function.

Our intent is for you to understand the types of questions can often be asked and answered efficiently using bioinformatics tools and resources. In many cases, what would have been a year-long experiment can now be handled with a few keystrokes. We will take you through many examples-extending from the exploration of gene structure up to 3D atlases of the human brain. We will help you learn how to mine, refine, and leverage many on-line resources  and integrate them with your own laboratory data and your own specific research objectives.

The course will consist of eight tutorial style lectures, followed by a set of informal breakout groups. You will be able to attend two of the four breakout sessions in the afternoon. We encourage you to bring your own problems and questions.

Course Organizers: Robert W. Williams PhD. and Dan Goldowitz PhD, University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Faculty: Carrolee Barlow M.D., PhD., Salk Institute; David L. Deitcher, PhD., Cornell University; Dan Geschwind, M.D., PhD., UCLA; Bruce S. Kristal, PhD., UCSD, Paul M. Thompson, PhD. UCLA
