Course on Automatic Functional Annotation and Data Mining, Oeiras, Portugal

Cost reduction in sequencing technologies is resulting in a growing number of laboratories getting involved in genome sequencing projects where a large amount of sequencing data is generated. After assembly, a large amount of unique sequences are obtained which need to be further characterized with putative functions. Good and sufficient functional annotations are decisive for follow up analyses such as gene expression, strain variations, tissue functional profiling, etc. The course will teach on the principals and practical aspects of automated functional annotation of (novel) sequence data.
