summer-term 2021

Computational Epigenetics for Master Bioinformatics

The lecture and course is designed for advanced Master students in Bioinformatics and will be held together with the department Integrative Cellular Biology & Bioinformatics (Jun. Prof. Dr. Fabian Müller).

When ?
August 2nd to August 17th 2021 in an online format (via MSTeams).

How ?
2nd to 4th August six theoretical lectures (90 minutes each) introducing into the biological and bioinformatic background. 10th until 13th August (9am – 5pm) a four day Hands on workshop.

To whom ?
Master students in Bioinformatics should have a basic knowledge in modern genomics and principles of epigenetics. They should have basic skills for script-based programming using the R language. The course will be limited to 20 (bioinformatics) students. Students who attended the lecture “Principles of Epigenetics” will be given priority. Non-bioinformatics students will be accepted on an individual basis if they can show that the requirements are met.
