Learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to provide deeper knowledge on algorithms used in bioinformatics. Students should know how most used methods and algorithms work, like pairwise and multiple alignment, BLAST, FASTA, scoring systems, PGMA clustering, sequencing, PCR, DNA fingerprinting.


We will focus on most common algorithms in Bioinformatics. Such algorithms are related to sequence assembly, sequence analysis, similarity searches, phylogenetics and structure predictions.
