About the course:
The course has a content that everyone working with molecular data - and almost every biologist - will need at one time or another. It focuses on comparative sequence analyses (DNA/RNA and protein) and public data-bases. It comprises the content, tools and interfaces of public databases on the Internet (e.g. GenBank, KEGG, UniProt) - mainly through web interfaces. Furthermore, you learn how genes are identified in sequence data, and how sequences are aligned in order to compare them.
