Aims, contents and method of the course

a. Aims: The students learn to develop and implement solutions for a project in bioformatics. They will present and discuss their approaches, implement and critically evaluate them.
b. Content: Based on a current bioinformatics problem a software will be developed, implemented, evaluated and documented. The results will be presented to the course participants.
c. Methods: Presentations and discussion of the project and the chosen approaches; Independant working, implementating and documentation in exchange and discussion with a project advisor.

Assessment and permitted materials

During this course a software project will be created. The project as a whole has to be described in a project report (PDF). In that report the biological/technical background has to be introduced, the chosen approaches described and justified and the results and possible problems have to discussed. In addition, the developed software and its usage has to be documented.
Furthermore, the project (its background, approaches and aims) has to be explained in a presentation at the beginning of the semester as well as its results and details in a final presentation at the end, both in front of the course participants.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

a. Minimum requirements: Successful initial and final presentation in front of the course participants; successful realization and implementation of the project; submission of project report (as PDF), code and documentation as archive (possibly plus data).
b. Assessment criteria: All parts enter the grading, i.e. project realization/implementation, project report, documentation and presentations.

Examination topics

All content relevant to the specific projects.

Reading list

Will be announced during the course.
