Please hand in your answers for a current exercise sheet latest just before the exercise, where the content will be discussed.
Remember to hand in the exercise sheet in iPython Notebook format!
The course members will learn to use and understand biological sequence
databases, perform searches, apply basic bioinformatic tools to answer
common questions in bioinformatics. In addition, you will learn to
solve basic bioinformatics questions using Python and visualise results
with R. The course will be separated into blocks of six
exercise sheets so that you will have to spend time on the course work
equally throughout the semester. You should try to solve the exercises
individually, but please contact us if you are stuck.
- DNA sequence databases & analysis, BLAST
- Protein sequence databases & analysis, multiple alignments, phylogenetic trees
- RNA sequence databases & analysis, folding, alignments, RNA-RNA interaction
- Real bioinformatics applications with Python
Requirements to pass the course:
- Oral presentation on demand and thus attendance to all meetings
- All exercise sheets must be attempted and handed in on time
- Late submissions will be penalized by a 10% reduction per day unless delays due to sickness can be proven
- Each exercise sheet is weighted equally
- >= 50% of all exercise sheets have to be correct
Please hand in the exercise sheet in iPython Notebook format on time (hand-in date provided in brackets). 'Handwritten' hand-ins will not be accepted!
