The PAMGO Training Workshop will provide two days of lectures on genome annotation, including how to evaluate the reliability of gene models produced by gene prediction software, how to evaluate functional predictions produced by annotation software, what are the Gene Ontology and PAMGO, how to use the Gene Ontology to accurately describe the functions of gene products. A third day will be devoted to hands-on experience in annotation of genes involved in host-associated microbes. Examples for annotation will be chosen based on the interests of the participants. The workshop will be valuable to researchers working in animal-microbe interactions as well as plant-microbe interactions.

The Oomycete Bioinformatics Workshop will provide a day of lectures introducing the wide variety of oomycete genomics and bioinformatics resources currently available, followed by a two-day "mini-jamboree" in which participants will carry our in depth comparisons of genes from the four oomycete genome sequences currently available: Phytophthora sojae, Phytophthora ramorum, Phytophthora infestans and Hyaloperonospora parasitica.
