Today the genome sequence of thousands of organisms is known, including our own genome sequence and that of many closely related species. To understand human biology and origins as well as how life in general has evolved it is necessary to compare these genomes. In this course you will learn how to compare genomes using bioinformatic techniques such as phylogeny and orthology prediction as well as other methods to understand the evolution of genes and genomes. Moreover, you will learn how to do functional annotation of proteins on the genome scale, and how to analyse the interactome.
Time: The course is given May-June (period D).
