Fri 10-12 (multiple groups)
- Examination will be a written test
Topic and Objectives
This is an introductory lecture to bioinformatics and is mandatory for the group's
advanced lectures in bioinformatics.
The topics of the course include sequence alignment and comparison,
hidden Markov models, and building phylogenetic trees.
Objectives: The course shall give an overview of bioinformatics
topics and understanding of some fundamental algorithms. The special focus
of the course is on sequence analysis.
- basic knowledge about molecular biology
- basic understanding of algorithms
Additional Information and Material
Although the course requires a basic understanding of molecular biology, an introduction
to the necessary foundations is also given in the first lectures.
