300311 VO Bioinformatics for the analysis of microbial genomes, metagenomes and metatranscriptomes (2012W)

4.00 ECTS (3.00 SWS), SPL 30 - Biologie

Die Vorlesung findet dienstags 10.00-12.00 Uhr im Hörsaal 2, UZA1, statt.



Aims, contents and method of the course

Since the advent of the genome area, bioinformatics has developed to an essential discipline for the analysis of biomolecular data. This lecture provides an overview on bioinformatics methods for the analysis of prokaryotic genomes, metagenomes and metatranscriptomes. Both established methods and tools, e.g. for gene prediction or functional and structural classification of proteins, and newly developed methods, e.g. for inferring functions from genomic associations, will be explained and discussed. Practical exercises will demonstrate the application of selected software tools to typical problems.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam.
