Key competence module: "Applied bioinformatics in microbiology" (6 C, 8 SWS) [M.Bio.147]

Learning outcome, core skills Students learn to deal with programmes and data bases which enable them to approach questions of modern biology, especially of genomics and system biology.
Special emphasis lies on:

  • application of bioinformatics in molecular phylogeny (analyses on evolution and genome dynamics, metagenomics)
  • bioinformatical analysis of RNAs (identification of small RNAs and riboswitches, folding of RNA molecules)
  • motive recognition and gene identification
  • generation and adaption of models of metabolic pathways
