In the group project, four students work together on a topic that was presented in the lecture.

To take this course, you must also be taking the course "Sequence Bioinformatics".

You can also take this course next summer while taking the course  "Structure Bioinformatics".

A number of topics will proposed. You will work on these topics for a number of weeks and will then present your results.

Your grade will be based on the presentation.

This course is mandatory for students enroled in MSc-Bioinformatics PO-2021 and these students will be given precedence.
