Bioinformatics 2

Module BIOINF 4120 - Bioinformatics 2

Topics covered:

Topics of the course are in particular RNA structure and RNA structure prediction, protein structure and modelling, prediction of protein structure, methods and concepts of systems biology, algorithms for expression profiling and biological networks (concepts, inference, simulation).

The topics of the BSc lecture ‚Grundlagen der Bioinformatik‘ will be revisited and addressed in detail. Thereby advanced techniques and applications related to research will be covered. Project works covering research-related subjects are embedded.
