Lecture during the course
The students know how to - sequence DNA by Sanger sequencing - assemble DNA sequences - use internet databases for sequence comparison - use the various facilities of the NCBI database - analyze bacterial genomes for presence of specific genes - use Genious for genome analysis - use ARB, databases and literature data to create - phylogenetic trees - design primers and probes - present and discuss scientific results - write a scientific protocol
“Introduction into DNA-sequencing and sequence analysis”: The course starts with a lecture on the first two days. During the following days the participants will give seminar talks about different scientific studies for which DNA sequencing was highly relevant. DNA sequencing will be taught in the lab of the working group. Sequence analysis, introduction into the use of various internet databases, the sequence analysis program Genious and the phylogeny program ARB will be demonstrated by individual use of laptops of the institute.
