Information:

This course can be used as a "Spezialvorlesung der Bioinformatik/Special-topic Lecture Bioinformatics"

Requirements:

no formal requirements, but solid prior knowledge about

  • cellular networks
  • genetics
  • omics technologies
  • programming experience

Content:

  1. biological content
    • circadian rhythms
    • cell cycle
    • cell differentiation/cell reprogramming
    • development of cancer
  2. bioinformatics content
    • microarray expression analysis
    • DNA methylation analysis
    • time series analysis
    • GO and pathway annotation
    • interaction networks
    • application of clustering techniques
    • construction of gene-regulatory networks
    • stochastic simulations
  3. mathematics content
    • stochastic processes + noise
    • differential equations
    • non-linear systems, bifurcations

Conditions for certification:

There will be three 45-minutes tests on different parts of the lecture. (a) Students need to pass at least two out of the three tests. (b) There will be about six bi-weekly graded assignments and tutorial sessions. Students need to get at least 50% of the points from the assignments. 

Schein/Certification:

An averaged score will be computed from the best two results of the three tests and this yields the grade of certification ("Schein"). There will be no final exam
