    LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system, with features designed for the production of technical and scientific documentation. LaTeX has been largely used for the communication and publication of scientific documents.


    This tutorial will cover the basic control commands and syntax of setting article layout, mathematical equations, lists, tables, figures and bibliographies. It will also introduce the flexible features of automatic numbering and cross-referencing. A one-hour hands-on component will follow the lecture to help the attendees practice the Latex commands and write an example of a scientific article using LaTex.

    Building a web interface for your database will expand the use of the database. A web-based database is more convenient for viewing and sharing data, especially in the field of bioinformatics. This tutorial will introduce how to build a web database using CGI/PERL and PHP in the Unix environment. It will cover the dynamic web page development using CGI or PHP, as well as how to connect databases such as Oracle and mySQL using DBI. SQL will also be introduced in the tutorial.
