the aim of reinforcing the development of genomic sciences in Latin American countries,
the RELAB (Red Latinoamericana de Biología) decided to organize a one week
course on the use of DNA Microarrays in Mexico City in 2002.
This course was
mainly theoretical with 7-9 invited speakers that reviewed the main applications
of the microarray technique in the various fields of basic and applied research,
with emphasis of its importance in diagnosis (this part of the course allowed
We also had three invited speakers that set up a bioinformatic
workshop limited to 30 students from Latin American countries. The purpose of
this part of the course was that the participants could obtain insights in the
use of the various programs and strategies available to analyze results obtained
from the scaning of the microarray slides.
The course also included a guided
visit to the MICROARRAY UNIT OF THE NATIONAL AUTONOMOUS UNIVERSITY (MAUNAM)
The third day of the program was devoted to a symposium in which the perspectives
of the development of genomic sciences in Latin American countries were discussed.
The speakers of this day were the leaders of the various groups that have been
involved in genomic research in these countries.
