Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Choose a method or algorithm to analyse different kinds of genomic data
  • Design an analysis strategy to interpret complex, heterogenous genomic data
  • Assess / Evaluate a publication based on genomic data

Transversal skills

  • Access and evaluate appropriate sources of information.
  • Summarize an article or a technical report.
  • Communicate effectively with professionals from other disciplines.
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools

Teaching methods

2 hours lecture (theoretical concepts) followed by 2 hours practical exercises (review the theory and practice with bioinformatics tools and data)

Lecture notes, slides and exercises provided on Moodle.

 

Expected student activities

Following the lectures, completing exercises, doing a project
