Purpose of the course To increase the understanding of the basic principles of bioinformatics and to gain practical skills in bioinformatics analysis of sequence data.
Intended learning outcomes After the completed course, the students will be able to utilize basic bioinformatics resources and tools, apply and integrate current, advanced computational biology methods in their research, and to make use of publicly available genome-wide sequencing data sets.
Contents of the course The course covers the use of most common bioinformatics resources such as public data bases and tools for sequence analysis. Practical excercises and discussions bridge sequence analysis to cellular function.
Teaching and learning activities The learning activities on the course consist of lectures and practical computer excercises. In addition, the students will be supervised in the preparation of presentations on bioinformatics to benefit their own research.
Compulsory elements The computer excercises are obligatory. Absence from the obligatory moments is compensated according to the instructions of the course director.
Examination Formative examination with practical computer excercises. Summative oral examination in conjunction with the presentation of individual student projects.
Literature and other teaching material Articles and online resources which will be recommended during the course.
