Dates: Monday 9:30-12:30 (starting 18.04.2016)

Language: English

Prerequisite (desirable): Introduction to Bioinformatics

Credits: 7 (10 with extra work)

Lecturers: Ivan G. Costa

Evaluation: 20% protoypes / 60% final project / 20% presentation

Campus Description:  Bioinformatik Praktikum 

We will cover the usage and development of bioinformatic methods for analysis of next generation sequencing data. The lab task will be based on the implementation of a full bioinformatics pipeline including: integration of low-level analysis tools (i.e. short sequencing aligner), development of a method for high level analysis (i.e. detection of Single-nucleotide polymorphism) and generation of a biology friendly interface for simple operations (web interface). We will provide real data as disease vs. normal individuals as case studies to be analysed by students.
