Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

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 in January 2020.
