Biological Sequence Analysis

From teaching

Jump to: navigation, search

Biological Sequence Analysis (course #27803) is an intensive, two-week Ph.D.-course that covers various aspects of bioinformatics and systems biology. It is a 7.5 ECTS course, which is arranged by the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis at DTU Systems Biology. The topics that are covered vary from year to year, and reflect the current research profile of the teaching group. Please check the course program for up-to-date details.
Onsite and online versions
The course is offered in an on-site version as well as an internet transmitted (online) version. Students on the online version of the course follow the same lectures as those on-site, via live, real-time transmitted lectures. Both onsite and online students are expected to attend all lectures for the two-week period, and to participate in computer exercises, where the students will be introduced to a range of computational methods used in the field. It will be possible for the online students to communicate and ask questions during the lectures and exercises via chat.
Practical information
The course has been postponed to June 2014 (most likely in weeks 25 + 26), instead of running in the winter of 2013 as originally announced. We plan to run the course again in November or December 2014 if there is sufficient interest (which we expect there will be).
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause with regard to your study plan. If it is absolutely necessary for you to obtain these ECTS before June, we can potentially offer you to do the course in the form of self study (viewing video recordings of lectures and solving computer exercises on your own, and with limited teacher interaction). Please contact us if you are interested in this option.
Only PhD students will be considered for admission.
