Course content

Bioinformatics plays a decisive role in molecular biology, but has also become a key topic in medical research. The focus in bioinformatics is on integrative analysis of high-throughput biological data, ranging from molecular-level data on sequences and macromolecular structures to clinical data. A major aim of this is to gain insights into complex diseases such as diabetes and cancer. The objectives of the course are to provide the students knowledge of a range of methods for finding, analyzing and integrating heterogeneous biological data in the context of a specific disease, and to provide them with the necessary foundation to critically evaluate results of such analyses.

Learning outcome

After completing the course the student is expected to:

Knowledge

  • Discuss how the information from biological experiments may be represented in an electronic format
  • Discuss how heterogeneous data can be integrated and evaluate

 

Skill

  • Search for data in publicly available databases such as GenBank, PDB 
and STRING
  • Use data analysis programs such as PyMol, R and Cytoscape
  • Produce and critically evaluate sequence alignments and protein networks
  • Present heterogeneous data on a biological system for answering biological questions
     

Competence

  • Master a range of methods for finding, analyzing and integrating heterogeneous biological data in the context of a specific disease
  • Critically evaluate results of such analyses
