P3 Fundamentals in data analysis

Places are limited to 25 participants per course

Dr. Johannes Stigler JS

In this block course, we teach basic quantitative skills that are necessary for understanding modern methods in structural biology (X-ray crystallography, Cryo-EM) and functional genomics (next generation sequencing). After a comprehensive refresher to basic math (calculus, statistics) and physics (wave optics), we will discuss more advanced methods (Fourier transformation) and their application to biological examples. Students will be introduced to the programming language Matlab, which they will use for image processing and data fitting. Every day, students will have 3 hours of lecture followed by 2 hours of tutorial; laptops will be made available to the students for the duration of the course.
The course is followed by a written examination (limited to 25 students). Those students that did not pass the examination have the option to attend the second examination. Note, that the purpose of the second examination is to provide a second opportunity to those students who failed in the first examination. They are favored in the registration. Students that failed in the second examination too, have the option to register for the second examination in the next semester(s). Note, that always those students from the actual course are favored for registration to the corresponding examination.
