Prerequisites: CS Master's level seminar. Participants must have attended and passed the course on "Introduction to Bioinformatics for Computer Scientists" in one of the preceding winter terms. 

Task: You will need to select papers to present, give a presentation and write a report.

This main seminar allows students to understand and present the contents of current papers in Bioinformatics such as published for instance in the journals Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, Journal of Computational Biologyetc. or at conferences such as ISMB or RECOMB.

We will provide a list of interesting papers, but students can also propose papers they are interested in. Students may also chose to cover broader topics of more general interest such as multiple sequence alignment, Bayesian phylogenetic inference, read assembly etc.

Each student will be assigned a lab member for help with understanding the article and preparing the slides as well as the report.

Students should give a 35 minute presentation on their topic of choice and write a report (Seminararbeit) comprising 8 pages.

Goals: Participants are able to understand, critically assess, and compare current research papers in Bioinformatics. They are able to present algorithms and models from current research papers in oral and written form at a level that corresponds to that of scientific publications and conference presentations. Participants are able to suggest extension to current methods. 

Credits: 3 ECTS
