Resources for Computational Drug Discovery

As mentioned by John Overington, the Joint EMBL-EBI/Wellcome Trust Course: Resources for Computational Drug Discovery on 2-5 July (see links here and here) is now open for registration. I'll be there as one of the trainers.

From previous experience of similar meetings at the EBI, if the topics covered are relevant to any problems you want to work on, I recommend going. It's very much hands-on; you will be introduced to the theory, then you will put it into practice. From the preliminary agenda (halfway down on this page), it seems that you will have the chance to apply the methods to your own problems of interest with help from the trainers. Also the whole meeting is quite small (in a good way) so you'll get to know the trainers and the other participants (notice my skillful avoidance of the word networking :-).

If you're going to be there and you read this blog, don't forget to say hi!
