Archive versions of two "condensed" versions of the course - an intensive weekend course and a related course organized within the framework of the EU TIPNET training network in May 2004, can be accessed here (some links may be dead).:


A preliminary, smaller version of this course has been taught as a part of the ICRO Course on plant molecular genetics held at the Royal Holloway University of London in July 2001. If the site no longer works, do not blame me.

As usual, this site is forever under construction, currenly containing a mixture of stuff that has worked last year and stuff that hopefully will work this year :-).

Since there will be more than the usual share of changes this year, an archive of the old version has been kept (may contain broken links!).

The course tasks use both free web-based resources and locally installed freeware (Windows) programs. If you want to set up your own copy of the course workstation, go here.
