- exercise: Wednesdays 14-16:00 ct
Topic and Objectives
In biological and medical research big data analysis is urgently needed for understanding the information that is encoded in the molecules of life. Many diseases, such as cancer, are caused by aberrations in those molecules. In this lecture you will learn the theoretical biological and bioinformatics background and techniques for generation and analysis of high-throughput data in life sciences.
This module has 6 ECTS credit points (180 hours of workload) for students of the technical faculty. The written or oral exam will take place after the lecture series.
The lecture is hosted in SR 00 007 building 106.
No. But the lectures and exercises Bioinformatics I & II from Prof Backofen would be very beneficial and give a good basic knowledge about background algorithms etc.
