On site courses are offered at public locations, or at companies/institutions that hire us. The course on Jan 26-28 will be conducted at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, at the Center for Life Sciences (CLS 11081A, 11th floor)in the Longwood Medical area. The street address is: 3 Blackfan Circle, Boston, MA 02115. Residents of the Boston area are encouraged to take the "T" commuter/bus services to get here, those from out of town are encouraged to book hotels within a 5 mile radius and use the same services to get to this building.

Online courses are offered via an online meeting system. Access information will be provided prior to the start of the course. Each session will last 90 to 120 minutes (total of 8 sessions), depending on the topics covered. For those who cannot attend the lectures at those times, the lectures will be recorded and placed on the course website as Flash videos (resolution reduced by 30%) each day, within one day. Students will also be able to communicate with the instructor and other students via the course forums. Lecture attendance is therefore not required. Since this will be an interactive, hands-on workshop, all attendees will need a computer with a broadband Internet connection (1 Mbps or faster is strongly recommended for those watching the live lecture), a sound card with speakers, a modern Web browser, and the Adobe Flash plugin. A microphone and webcam is not required for this course. The necessary software, lecture notes and exercises will be provided.


This course is certified by the Bioinformatics Organization, Inc., the largest international affiliation in the field, and it will count as 10 "Continuing Scientific Education" (CSE) credits (one credit per contact hour) within the Organization. Students completing the course will receive a certificate attesting to that.
