Practical Course: Bioinformatics Applications in Genome Research

392181 Bohnenkämper Block 18.03.- 28.03. 9:30-17:30


In this course, practical applications and issues in concrete problem statements and handling real data sets will be addressed. The following topics are intended: assembly, scaffolding, annotation, gene prediction, comparative analysis, etc.

Theoretical knowledge of the students shall be supplemented by practical aspects such as setting up and running existing tools, implementing small own tools, pre- and postprocessing, and critical interpretation of results. A continuously enriched visualization of the data and the obtained results will also guide through the course.

  • Requires participation in the lecture “Algorithms in Genome Research” or similar.
  • Beside regular and active participation in the course, each student gives a short (15min) presentation and presents their results to the other participants.
