Programming course "Algorithms in Bioinformatics"

Tutors

General Aim and Major Purpose

The aim of the practical course is to acquire and implement a manageable amount of algorithms out of a sub-branch of bioinformatics. Based on a literature search for each algorithm, a comprehensive description and implementation using Python will be the aim of the course.
Therefore, the programs should be implemented, such that command-line calls and the usability as modules is realized.
Within one session, the (almost) finished program-codes will be cross-validated and evaluated by the courses' participants.
English is the course language -> Presentations, Documentations and the Comments within the code have to be in english!
