We'd like to let GO friends know about another TIGR course:

Prokaryotic Genome Annotation and Analysis Course

Since 2002 TIGR TIGR has offered a three-day course in Prokaryotic Genome Annotation and Analysis. This course will familiarize attendees with TIGR's prokaryotic annotation methods, tools, and computational pipeline for annotation, including our manual annotation tool Manatee (an open source tool which can be found at . In this class you will learn about many of the searches, tools, and processes we use to annotate, analyze and compare prokaryotic genomes, including a detailed session on GO.
This course is aimed at anyone who desires to know how prokaryotic annotation works.   The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of biology.  Computers will be provided for the hands-on portions of the course

General outline:
Day 1:  gene finding, sequence similarity-based searches, evidence evaluation, protein naming guidelines, the Gene Ontology system, Manatee demo
Day 2:  Hands-on annotation exercises with Manatee, overview of Manatee architecture and underlying database structure, overview of local installatin of Manatee
Day 3:  A detailed look at the Comprehensive Microbial Resource (CMR) and a tutorial on how to use some of its many genome comparision and analysis tools, and hands-on exercises.

Upcoming Dates for the Course in 2007:
March 27-29, 2007  
June 12-14, 2007
August 21-23, 2007
October 16-18, 2007
Tuition of $595.00 includes all class materials and lunch each day.  The course is held on the TIGR campus in Rockville, MD, USA.
For more information, see the website:, email me, or call Anna von Arx at 301-795-7943.

This course is a perfect complement to TIGR's Annotation Engine Service, a FREE service through which TIGR provides gene finding, automatic annotation, all accompanying search data, a MySQL database housing the data, and the manual annotation tool Manatee to anyone who has a prokaryotic DNA sequence they wish to annotate.  The sequence need not be completely finished.  For more information on this service please go to

Thanks for reading,
