This is the wiki for the courses MBV-INF4410 and MBV-INF9410 offered by the Department of Biosciences and Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo (UiO). Both MBV-INF4410 (M.Sc. level) and MBV-INF9410 (Ph.D. level) are 10 study point courses. The 8 study points variant of the course (MBV-INF9410A) will no longer be given after 2013.

The course consists of five weeks of lectures, exercises, obligatory assignments, and a take-home exam (one week). Obligatory assignments must be completed and approved before the exam and in the same semester. An additional, limited, oral examination may be arranged in cases where this is necessary for the student evaluation. The course is open also for non-UiO students. It is only necessary to be physically present in Oslo for certain parts of the course.

Course description

This intensive course will introduce students to bioinformatics resources and tools for molecular biology research. All the lecturers are among the top researchers working within the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology in the Oslo region. Students must bring their own lap-top for in-course demonstrations as well as for practical lab exercises. The course is mainly intended for biology students, but also for computer science students or students from other fields of science with an interest for and some experience with molecular biology. No prior background in bioinformatics or computer science is required. All students should have a basic understanding of molecular biology, at least roughly corresponding to 5-10 university study points in molecular biology, biochemistry, or similar. If you are uncertain if your biology background is strong enough, please contact the course administrator before you sign up for the course.

Course responsible in 2016, 2917, and 2018 is Jon Bråte (e-mail: jon.brate@ibv.uio.no), from the Department of Biology, UiO.

Course responsible for the years 2012 to 2015 was Dr. Jon K. Lærdahl (jonkl@medisin.uio.no) from the Department of Microbiology, Oslo University Hospital (OUH) - Rikshospitalet. Lærdahl was also employed by the CLS initiative at UiO and is employed by the Bioinformatics Core Facility (CF) at OUH and UiO.
