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 Programming: - practical examples in R and a short introduction in PythonAssessment methodsExercises to be handed in using the Moodle Platform, and short mulitple choice tests also on the Moodle platform.Teaching methodslecture, powerpoint presentation, discussion and hands on exercisesLanguageGerman-English> Biotechnological Seminar SE Bioinformatics moreBiotechnological Seminar SELector: Ing. Michael Geissler, MSc., FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf, FH-Prof. DI Dr. Michael Maurer, Katharina Seiberl, BSc MSc0.5SWS1ECTSLecture contentsAs an example from biotechnology, students will work in the brew lab to create a beer, following a recipe. 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 methodsStudents will be graded on their performance in the lab and the design of the label and web page.Teaching methodsPresentation, praktical lab exerciseLanguageGerman> Metagenom Analysis ILV Bioinformatics moreMetagenom Analysis ILVLector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf1SWS2ECTSLecture contentsIntroduction to the production and analysis of metagenome/microbiome data.Assessment methodsPresentation of a practical task.Teaching methodsVortrag, Diskussion und praktisches Beispiel.LanguageGerman-English> Master Thesis Supervision AP Bioinformatics moreMaster Thesis Supervision APLector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf0SWS1ECTSLecture contentsMethodology for the implementation of the diploma thesis: clarification of the procedure through individual presentations of the thesisAssessment methodsAssessment of the presentationTeaching methodsPresentationsLanguageGerman> Master Thesis Seminar SE Bioinformatics moreMaster Thesis Seminar SELector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf1SWS1ECTSLecture contentsIn the course each student presents his/her Master thesis.
