Timetable: First Semester (pdf)

Please note:

  • „Algorithms“ and „Optimization“ are offered in blocks which means that during the first half of the term only „Algorithms“ is taught, while „Optimization“ is taught during the second half of the term.
  • This timetable is a suggestion requiring hardwork and effort. In some cases,it might be better to attend only three or four of the suggested modules.

Advanced students:

There will be no core modules offered.
The following Practical courses are provided:

  • Current Issues in Cell Physiology (Feb/March)
  • Applied Sequence Analysis (during winter semester)
  • Measurement and Analysis of Physiological Processes (March/April)
  • Current Issues in Structural Bioinformatics (March/April)

Further courses (for the Research Modules) are provided, see course catalog.

General:

The official registration for all courses is processed via Campus Management. There is a deadline for registration about four weeks after the first lecture. To enroll in courses in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, students are also required to register via KVV.

Starting in the 2015/16 winter semester, there is a limit on the number of times students can attempt to repeat an exam. If an exam is not passed, it can be repeated three times (you are permitted a maximum of four attempts). Examination dates in bioinformatics are non-binding in most cases, meaning that you can deregister for an exam anytime before you actually appear to take the exam. Please be sure to see the "Allgemeine Hinweise" (general information in German) published by the examinations office. For modules that are not described in the bioinformatics study/examination regulations, this may be different. If you have any doubts, please be sure to consult your instructor.

If you have any general questions concerning the stucture or organization of the program please contact the course coordinator or the examination office.

Please note:

  • Due to the amount of courses, it sometimes cannot be avoided that some courses overlap. If there are several students who wish to attend two overlapping classes, please contact the course instructors and the study office. We will check whether there is the possibility that one of the courses takes place at a different time.
  • The language of instruction in all master’s courses may be German or English. If international students without sufficient knowledge of German participate in a course, the language of instruction is always English.
