Large-scale analysis of biological data, such as DNA and protein sequences, has recently become a natural part of many different kinds of biological research. This course aims to give students a better understanding of the methods and algorithms in bioinformatics used in different types of analyzes, and how data and results can be presented. The course also provides students with the necessary practical skills necessary to perform large-scale analyzes, such as assembly and annotation of genomes, analysis of gene expression data and constructing phylogenetic trees. The course also introduces students to basic programming in Linux / Unix.
