We are happy to announce that new training course covering the basics of algorithms and data structures in computational biology is now available for registration.
This course is designed for individuals with backgrounds in math, computer/data science, or bioinformatics. The course aims to cover the basics of algorithms and data structures, and will give students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of current trends in computational biology. Throughout the course, students will expand their knowledge of algorithms, build their biological vocabulary, and make connections with other biologists.
The central problems of the course will be sequence alignment and pangenomics․ The course will cover topics such as dynamic programming, and graph algorithms, as well as concepts such as complexity, runtime and scaling, and approximate vs exact algorithms.
