Current Info Summer Semester 2023

Semester Notes

  • Official registration period for all courses in Campus Management is April 3 - May 05, 2023
    Booking in Campus Management is required for all courses! Some classes consist of more than one course (...1/2, ... a/b/c). For completing the corresponding module all courses must be booked.
  • Places in courses with space limitations will be allocated on Friday, April 14, beginning at 12:00 PM.
  • Some courses also require an additional registration in Whiteboard (Guide to Whiteboard System). If you can't find a course in Whiteboard, registration in Whiteboard is probably not needed. In case of doubt, please ask the lecturer.
  • The language of instruction in all master programs can be German or English. However, it has to be English if students without sufficient knowledge of German participate in a course. (There may be exceptions for courses that originate from other programs).
  • For more details on the study program, curriculum, study regulations etc., please have look on the page Profile and Structure.
  • If you're looking for a research internship or thesis, here are some suggestions.
  • If you have any general questions concerning the structure or organization of the program, please contact the course coordinator or the examination office. Questions about individual courses should always be directed to the instructor.
Please send email requests always from your official FU account! When making enquiries, always state your matriculation number so that we can find you in the system.

Special aspects of Bioinformatics A/B/C (2 V, 2 Ü, 5 CP)

  • Statistical Methods in Small Sample Size (60102301/02)

Please select this module only if you have already used up module Advanced Biometrical Methods (V-Module, 5 CP)!

Please note: Elective modules are not assigned to Focus Areas!

According to the study regulations, at least one V-module and one practical module (Praxismodul) must be chosen from the range of optional modules. This refers to the whole study program, the Focus Area is irrelevant.

If you cannot locate a specific course in Campus Management, check the list above to see to which module(s) it is assigned to!

Example: The course (seminar) "Large-scale phylogeny inference" is assigned to the modules "Current research topics in Bioinformatics A", "Current research topics in Bioinformatics B" and "Current research topics in Bioinformatics C". Please choose the A module if possible. If A is not available (=already used by another course), the B module and if that is not available either, the C module.
