Message from Stuart Dennis:

Registration is now open for our Winter School on Whole Genome Sequence Assembly and Annotation at Monte Veritá, Switzerland from 4-9 February 2018. Please share this advertisement with your colleagues and students.
The Winter School is a intensive 5-day workshop on how to Assemble and Annotate Whole Sequence Data – with a focus on de novo whole genome assembly and analysis of complex Eukaryote genomes. The Winter School will combine lectures with computer based practicals and will be most valuable to those who have, or will soon have, whole genome sequence data.
