Course information

This is the wiki for the courses MBV-INF4410 and MBV-INF9410 offered by the Department of Biosciences (IBV) at the University of Oslo (UiO). Both MBV-INF4410 (M.Sc. level) and MBV-INF9410 (Ph.D. level) are 10 study point courses.

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.

Computers/laptops, internet access, and UiO user account

All students are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops.

  • It should be possible to connect the computer to the UiO wireless network (probably Eduroam)
  • You must have a root/administrator password that gives you access to installing new software on the computer
  • Please bring an external mouse, and do not rely on touchpad/trackpad only
  • You must have a valid UiO user account and must be able to log onto a computer on the UiO network
  • Instructions on how to find your username and get a new password can be found here. To get a UiO username/password at the UiO helpdesk you need valid ID.

If you are struggling with anything of the above, in particular if you have forgotten your UiO user name/password or you do not have one, you must contact Jon (see contact details) as soon as possible, and at least one week before the start of the course.

On the first day of the course we will set up your laptop so that it can be used for the exercises/tutorials, the home exam and hopefully in your future work. How to get a reasonable setup is described here.

If you already are an expert programmer and Unix guru, go here.

Time and place (Rooms)

The teaching starts at 09:15 and we will end at latest 16:00. Most of the teaching will take place in room 4613 on the 4th floor of Biology Buiding (Kristine Bonnevies Hus, KB). Some days we have to change rooms so check the detailed program regularly.

Detailed program

The times listed here are only tentative and may likely change. We will mix in small breaks here and there and try to have a lunch break between 12:00 - 13:00.
