Module contents
“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.
