Discrete Computational Biology
- Starting with an introduction into basic discrete mathematics, in particular graphtheory,
we will turn on to explore their application in biology.
The lecture will include topics like: RNA (e.g. folding, combinatorial problems),
phylogentics, phenotypespaces (graphproducts ).
The special lecture should prepare students for master and Ph.D. theses at the interface
between biological problems, bioinformatics and discrete mathematics.
- Familiarity with discrete mathematics, bioinformatics 1 and 2, basics of programming, and algorithms.
- >= 50 percent correctly solved problems in the exercises ((2-)weekly)
