Teachers Thomas Nordahl Petersen Henrik Nielsen Anders Gorm Pedersen Bent Petersen Thomas Blicher
This is a hands-on course Lectures are giving the background/theory of a bioinformatics topic –The exercises are giving you a hands-on experience the that topic Example Theory of sequence alignment –Alignment by hand, filling out scoring matrices Learning about the amino acids –Building amino acids by hand (Model building)
Everything is linked from the course programme
Readings, slides and hand-outs
Outline of the course Topics will cover a general introduction to bioinformatics –Evolution –DNA / Protein and amino acids –Alignment and scoring matrices How does it work & what are the numbers –Visualization of multiple alignments Phylogenetic trees and logo plots –Commonly used databases Uniprot/Genbank & Genome browsers Genotype, phenotype & SNP’s –Protein 3D-structure & homology modeling –Artificial neural networks & case stories –Practical use of bioinformatics tools –Sequence information and Logo plots
Outline of the course
The Amino Acids Asn (N) Asp (D) Gln (Q) Glu (E) His (H) Lys (K) Arg (R) Tyr (Y) Trp (W) Phe (F) Gly (G) Pro (P) Ile (I) Met (M) Leu (L) Ala (A) Val (V) Ser (S) Cys (C) Thr (T)
Automated sequencing The major break-through of sequencing has happended through automation. Fluorescent dyes. Laser based scanning. Capillary electrophoresis Computer based base- calling and assembly. Images:

Neural Networks From knowledge to information Protein sequence Biological feature
Prediction of biological features Surface accessible Predict surface accessible from amino acid sequence only.
Information content, how is it calculated - what does it mean.
