The course is targeted towards bioinformatics students, who have succesfully completed 'Computational Biology / Bioinformatics II' given by Thomas Lengauer.
There will be one project along with the course during the whole semester. The project will consist of reading, programming, writing a brief report, and giving a short presentation. Participating successfully in the project is a necessary requirement for taking the oral exam. The final grade will be 25% semester-project and 75% oral exam. The course is within the curriculum bioinformatics as an optional course ("Spezialvorlesung") with 5 credit points ("Leistungspunkten").
The course provides three perspectives on protein structure and function: principles of protein science, computational techniques, and applications. Topics covered include structure determination, geometric techniques for handling and comparing structures, structure prediction applications, biochemistry and prediction of protein function.
