My experience in training provision and organization dates back from 1986. In 1999 I started to organize a training programme named GTPB  


I am always interested in:

- Finding ways of enhancing the efficiency in the transfer of skills (new methods, new technologies)

- Finding new areas of Biology for which there is a need for Bioinformatics training

- Finding new instructors with good training skills, that may have produced relevant material for training

- Making training more affordable (especially for students)


Suggestions are more than welcome.
