BiBiServ Distance Education and Training

Bioinformatics is a young and dynamic field. The integration of knowledge from biology and computer science requires a significant educational effort. Our Distance Education and Training Department serves as the base for the following educational activities:

  • Basic Sequence Analysis

    • A WWW-based practical course on Sequence Analysis with Distributed Resources. This course has been available since 1998. A previous version has been translated into several languages and was regularly offered at various locations. So much for history -- the course has been updated and completely remodelled in 2005.

  • Advanced Sequence Analysis

    • Here are excerpts from the Advanced Course on Computational RNA Biology organized in Tübingen in 2006. These materials cover pseudoknot folding, comparative structure analysis, and miRNA target prediction, including exercises.
  • Dynamic Programing

  • Dynamic programming is a predominant programming technique in biosequence analysis.
    Algebraic Dynamic Programming (ADP) is a new method to design and implement, tune, test and teach Dynamic Programming algorithms.

    • About Dynamic Programming provides a gentle introduction to the technique of (algebraic) dynamic programming, and guidance with using interactive application examples

    • The Algebraic Dynamic Programming Homepage constitutes an exposition of what has been achieved with ADP, including literature, applications and current research.

  • Current activities in bioinformatics education, including our local curriculum.

  • History

    Here are links to educational adventures in the early days of bioinformatics, mostly outdated by the material listed above.
