This class covers the basic algorithmic techniques used in the computational analysis of genome and post-genome data. This includes algorithms for genomic mapping and assembly, methods for functional genome annotation (gene finding and gene function prediction), algorithms for the analysis of DNA microarrays and mass spectra, methods and models for protein structure prediction, and algorithms for comparative genomics.
The page AlgGRLiterature contains many links to the original literature.
Prof. Istvan Miklos, from the Bioinformatics Group in Alfréd Rényi Institute in Budapest, kindly shared his visualization software for the Breakpoint Graph. It is written in Java, and you can download it here.

The input must be a signed permutation in one line, the numbers separated with a TAB. There are some examples in the package.
Select the black edges on which the reversal should act, and press the button Mutate. You can go forward and backward in the list of generated genomes, and you can delete any of them, too.

Oral exams will be on 26.02.2016. Please make an appointment with the secretary in U10-151, Heike Samuel.
If necessary, a second oral exam can be scheduled on an individual basis until end of March 2016.
