The seminar series “Current Research in Bioinformatics” and “Making of a Drug” are suited for listeners without a detailed computational background. “Programming for Life Sciences “consists of lectures and exercises, where students are expected to acquire programming skills to be able to solve data analysis problems in life sciences. “Current Topics in Biophysics” make the students familiar with current topics in these sub-fields. Basic programming skills and a solid mathematical background are required. For students interested in computational biology, but without a background in computational sciences, the lecture Computational Biology I is worth attending, but it is not part of the graduate teaching program. Similarly, the block course in Synthetic Systems Biology is recommended to students with basic molecular biology skills and interest in this topic.

Recommended lectures outside the graduate teaching program:

Synthetic Microbiology – 12469
(3-week block course, 8 CP; Fall 2023)
Computational Biology I: Quantitative Data Analysis – 23605
(2 hrs/week, 4 CP; Spring 2023)
