Bioinformatics, 7.5 credits

About the education

The amount of available data in life sciences is rapidly increasing and to use this data in the best possible way is rapidly becoming one of the corner-stones in all biological research. In the future, or already today, we believe it will only be possible to become a successful life science scientist if you, in addition to your own data, fully can use data available from large scale studies. In this course we will cover the basic bioinformatical methods to analyze protein sequence and protein structure. The goals are that after this course you should be able to use state of the art methods to predict the function and structure of an unknown protein sequence. You will learn to use and understand the basic tools in bioinformatics, including tools for: sequence searching, sequence alignments, secondary structure, fold recognition, homology modeling.

Time: The course is given Jan.-Feb. (period A)

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
