2020 - GBIO0002 - Genetics and bioinformatics


In this course genetic concepts are introduced that are necessary to understand a selection of bioinformatics related data analysis problems. To solve these problems a variety of analytic tools will be explained and exemplified.

The course is in part based on interactive ex-cathedra lectures and in part on interactive practical sessions. The exercise sessions allow students to become familiar with the theoretical concepts introduced during the theory classes. They prepare students to successfully carry out their homework assignments.

This course is organized by Kristel VAN STEEN and Franck DEQUIEDT



  • Class of 1 December 2002 will start at 14.30 and will finish at 17.00
  • 31 October 2020: Additional instructions for homework assignment 1 can be downloaded HERE .
  • 12 October 2020: The group memberships for homework assignments can be viewed HERE . Every group should have at least one master student as a member. We propose that master students take the initiative to contact fellow members. As soon as the homework assignments are available, please discuss in your group which style of homework you will take and indicate this in the form (last two columns; dropdown menue). On the basis of this information, further instructions will follow (for instance, about the duration of each presentation in case you selected "literature style").
  • Prepare yourself for the first class: Please follow the instructions HERE to pre-install on your computer the software that will be used in class 1 and/or subsequent classes.
