Applications are now being accepted for the 2011 GMOD Spring Training

These components will be covered:

* Tripal - web front end to Chado databases
The deadline for applying is the end of Friday, January 7, 2011.
Admission is competitive and is based on the strength of the
application, especially the statement of interest. The 2010 school had
over 60 applicants for the 25 slots. Any application received after
deadline will be automatically placed on the waiting list.
The course requires some knowledge of Linux as a prerequisite. The
registration fee will be $265 (only $53 per day!). There will be a

interested, you are strongly encouraged to apply by January 7.
