Those who sign up for this interdisciplinary course should be able to read and comprehend a scientific paper or book chapter written in English. Alternatively computational tools in bioinformatics will be studied. Deeper knowledge of algorithm design and programming will allow the particular student to focus more on the biological side of the studied problems or vice versa. Students of non-biological fields should be concurrently enrolled in, or have previously passed IV107 Bioinformatics I. Alternatively they may frequent the course with the consent of the teacher.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
Fields of study the course is directly associated with

Course objectives
The Fall Term seminar (P series) will be titled "Prediction of protein function and structure from sequence". The course will convene for 1hr weekly.
Learning outcomes
Students will gain insight into problems studied in bioinformatics; they will practice presentation and discussion techniques in front of an audience.
  • The students will chose publications to study recent methods in genomic sequence analysis (using suggested journal articles or other material approved by the teacher).
  • Protein structure and function prediction from sequence
  • Similarity of protein molecules
  • Signalling and metabolic pathway analysis and visualization
