Undervisning er på dansk, men undervisningsmateriale er fortrinsvis på engelsk.
Teachers Thomas Nordahl Petersen Rasmus Wernersson Anders Gorm Pedersen Bent Petersen Kasper Nielsen Thomas Blicher
This is a hands-on course The major part of the course is computer exercises We get to use the actual methods We get to use “live” online database
Readings, slides and hand-outs Power point presentations are uploaded when ready. Updated versions are available the day after.
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 –Protein 3D-structure & homology modeling –Artificial neural networks & case stories –Practical use of bioinformatics tools –Sequence information and Logo plots
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: http://www.idtdna.com/support/technical/TechnicalBulletinPDF/DNA_Sequencing.pdf
