·                  September 26 to October 4, 2011, Hands-on Course on Coarse Grain Methods for Biomolecular
 Institut Pasteur in Montevideo, Uruguay
The development of simplified or coarse grain (CG) representations of molecular systems added to the growth of computational power, allow nowadays the study of size and timescales that really match those biologically and technologically relevant.
The Institut Pasteur in Montevideo will offer in September-October 2011 a hands-on course on simulations of biological systems to provide a comprehensive and wide spectrum of CG techniques.
This event will count with internationally recognized speakers in the field. As it will be conducted in English, participants must have an adequate working knowledge of this language.
The Course will also aim to create an interdisciplinary collaboration amongst all the attendees by dedicating an entire session to oral presentations. Dissemination of the participants' work, besides that of the main speakers, will help form networks of collaborative work and stimulating capacity building.
The deadline for applications was July 1st 2011.

·                  November 21st – December 2nd, 2011, Second Course "Functional genomics and its applications in Biomedicine"               
Institut Pasteur in Montevideo, Uruguay

Deadline for applications:  September 15th, 2011
The aim of the course is to offer training opportunities to PhD students and Post-docs in Functional Genomics, a rapidly envolving area of biomedicine and biotechnology with high impact in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of human and animal disease. The first edition of this course two years ago was mainly focused on microarray technologies. Today, the advent of next-generation sequencing technologies (NGS), and the application of new mutational screening strategies are taking genome studies to new dimensions. Therefore, in this updated second edition, the focus will be put not only on basic microarray technologies but it will also include the latest knowledge on NGS and genome-wide RNAi high-throughput screening techniques.
