Comparative Genomics, 7.5 credits

About the education

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).

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.
