Lector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf

3 SWS
3 ECTS

Lecture contents

In this lecture we talk about what Bioinformatics is and why we need it today. 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.

Biotechnological Seminar UE

Lector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf, FH-Prof. DI Dr. Michael Maurer

0.5 SWS
1 ECTS

Lecture contents

As 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 methods

Students will be graded on their performance in the lab and the design of the label and web page.

Molecular Genetics and Straindevelopment VO

Lector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf, Ing. DI (FH) Dr. Harald Kühnel, MSc

2 SWS
4 ECTS

Lecture contents

Knowledge on basics of molecular genetics:

What are living organisms made of - in a biochemical sense - what molecules - which compartments and structures?
How are these molecules, compartments and structures passed on to offspring?
How do living organisms function in a chemical and physical sense?
How is this live "steered"?
How identical are offspring to their parents, or how different?
How is genetic and biological relationship explained on the molecular level?

Knowledge on basics recombinant DNA technology:

Enzymatic modification of DNA
Amplification of DNA - Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
Gene expression and cloning
Transfer of DNA into host cells
Isolation of genomic and plasmid DNA
Bacteriophages - biology and application
Qualitative and quantitative analytical methods
Expression systems/hosts/vectors
Genomics and Proteomics

Programme Design, Automation, Bachelor Thesis SE

Lector: DI Norbert Auer, FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Alexandra Graf

5 SWS
10 ECTS

Lecture contents

The lecture is meant to support the students in their bachelor thesis, the content is dependent on the topic the student has selected.

Python (Norbert Auer):
Based on the programming lectures so far, this lecture finalizes important programming concepts with Python. 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.

Teaching methods

Presentation and dialogs,
