Bioinformatic pattern analysis is an essential tool to convert the large amount
of data produced in e.g. genomics projects, to biological insight. The overall
aim of bioinformatic pattern analysis research is to obtain knowledge about a
part of the information processing which takes place in the cell: the complex
relations between sequence composition - the content and order of the chemical
building blocks - and macromolecular structure and function. In addition, the
research creates new possibilities in the study of evolutionary processes by
comparison of sequence patterns within genome and across species.
During this course the students will be given an introduction to the concepts
and methods of bioinformatic pattern analysis. Our emphasis will be on studying
function and evolution of proteins, genomes and metabolitical networks. We will
span a range of methods like: Phylogeny, database searches, sequence alignments and microarray
technologies to measure gene expression.
