Bioinformatical Approaches in Viral Genomics

Seminar Thursday, 12.15-13.45 in U10-146 Kobert, Schulz 392224


The goal of this seminar is to provide the participants with a short introduction into methods and problems from virology in the field of Bioinformatics. To this end, each participant is expected to independently read and understand a research article, and to present its core ideas and results in a short talk. A selection of papers will be provided, however, students with a particular area of interest are free to suggest topics of their own, provided they fall into the broader scope of viral genomics/bioinformatics.

Finally, each student is to prepare a summary/report of the chosen topic using LaTeX.

Language: English or German


  • Recommended prior knowledge: Algorithmen und Datenstrukturen (39-Inf-1)
  • Oral presentation (20-45 minutes)
  • Summary/Report (8-15 pages)


For an overview of the topics discussed in this seminar see for example this paper by Orton et al.
