The aim is to give the students essential bioinformatics skills on a user level.
The course introduces the students to describing bioinformatic problems, selecting bioinformatic methods and solving simple bioinformatic problems using existing tools.
|Detailed description of content||
The course will introduce the students to describing bioinformatic problems, selecting bioinformatic methods and solving simple bioinformatic problems using existing tools.
|Course material and Reading list||

Additional material available from Moodle
|Overall plan and expected work effort||
The course is composed of 5 modules. Each module is concluded with a written module report. The module reports form the basis for the written final report. The module reports can be written individually or in groups of 2-3 students. The final report is written in groups of 2-4 students.
|Evaluation and feedback||
The course includes formative evaluation based on dialogue between the students and the teacher(s).
Students are expected to provide constructive critique, feedback and viewpoints during the course if it is needed for the course to have better quality. Every other year at the end of the course, there will also be an evaluation through a questionnaire in SurveyXact. The Study Board will handle all evaluations along with any comments from the course responsible teacher.
Furthermore, students can, in accordance with RUCs ‘feel free to state your views’ strategy through their representatives at the study board, send evaluations, comments or insights form the course to the study board during or after the course.
Five modules; each module focus on a specific bioinformatical problem and consist of:
