The studients will be introduced to basic programming and can play around with simple practical examples.We will go through specific topics of Bioinformatics and discuss the available applications. The topics include:- Why did Bioinformatics develop and what is it.- Human Genome Project and its consequences- Biological sequences, sequence comparison and database search.- Pattern search- Structure of biological sequences and structure prediction- High throughput technologies and data analysis Assessment methods Exercises to be handed in using the Moodle Platform, and short mulitple choice tests also on the Moodle platform.

Students will be introduced into the topic of brewing and will have the chance to see an automated solution and investigate the data produced by the equipment. Additionally to the work in the lab, students are required to design a label for their beer and create a website with the recipes they worked on.The students will work in groups of 3-4 persons. Assessment methods Students will be graded on their performance in the lab and the design of the label and web page.

Practical examples from different areas, such as functions, class hierarchies, polymorphism, interfaces, exceptions, modules, and file in/output, are presented and practiced. Assessment methods This lecture is the basis for the bachelor thesis and will be appraised together with it.
