Dear Sir or Madam,


The Bioinformatics Platform (BIP) is offering the Applied Computational
Genomics Course (ACGC) to Bioinformatics/ Biology researchers and students
as well as to doctors and residences. 


The ACGC runs full-days from July 14th to July 20th in Calgary, Alberta,


Featuring instruction from some of the best bioinformaticians across Canada
on software applications such as BioMoby, Birch, Bluejay, Helpdesk, and
more, we are confident that this course will be of benefit to you, your
staff and colleagues, or any graduate students you may know.  


For additional information, please visit our website at
http://www.gcbioinformatics.ca/training or contact Administrative
Coordinator Susanne Cardwell at smcardwe at ucalgary.ca.


Also, if possible, we are asking your assistance to help advertise ACGC via
your email, newsletters, or website. Please see the brief description of the
ACGC below which I am hoping you will circulate (by posting) throughout your
faculty, department, or place of work. 


If you would like to have a one-page poster or a four-page handout to
distribute or to keep for your own purposes, please do not hesitate to email
me at smcardwe at ucalgary.ca or training at gcbioinformatics.ca with "ACGC" in
the subject line. 


I would be more that happy to provide you with more information. Feel free
to contact me at smcardwe at ucalgary.ca (Subject: ACGC Course Information)
with any questions, comments, or feedback. 


Thank you in advance for your assistance!
