Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

- present the importance of the field of applied bioinformatics for the field of biomedical engineering and life sciences.

- derive the biological and biotechnological basics for the solution of bioinformatic problems.

- explain the essential tasks and applied tools for the analysis of DNA, RNA and protein sequences.

- explain important bioinformatic databases and their architecture.

Subject of course

The lecture covers the following tasks:

- Introduction to Bioinformatics.

- Bioinformatic Servers and Databases

- Tools and algorithms for finding DNA, RNA and protein sequence similarities.

- Introduction to applied bioinformatics of the genome, transcriptome, proteome and metagenome.

- Models for molecular evolution and their calculation

The focus of the lecture is on developing the knowledge for the correct application of bioinformatic tools and programs.
