Official Course Description:
The course has the intention to provide an overview over current bioinformatic approaches in sequence and genome analysis by a direct linkage of the biological problem with the computational approaches to solve them. An important task of bioinformatics is to put data into a larger context by identifying statistical similarities between the data. Finding genes in DNA sequences, identifying common structural features in (evolutionarily) related protein sequences and extracting functional properties from the architecture of cellular networks are examples of this general strategy of bioinformatics, which will be highlighted throughout the course.

Major topics will be:
- Biological data, acquisition and storage
- Similarity and Alignment
- Pairwise and Multiple Sequence comparisons
- Sequence patterns and motifs
- Genome analysis
- Genome signatures
- Hidden Markov models
- Networks
