Algorithms in Bioinformatics



This course focusses on algorithms to explore the many types of data produced in the life sciences, while combining theory and practice. The course teaches the students how to deal with DNA and protein sequence data algorithmically. We will develop software to find disease causing mutations in cancer etc., to understand what genes do and to elucidate human ancestry. Towards those goals, we deal with functional gene annotation, biological databases, comparative genomics, phylogenetics, forensics and structural bioinformatics.
