Bioinformatics (2015/2016)


2016-03-29 The exam papers have been marked and delivered to the Student Office in the mathematical Sciences building. The papers are still anonymous, so I don't know the grades of individual students. I hope that these papers will be processed soon so that you know your result before the re-exam.
2016-03-29 A formula collection for the HMM part of the course will NOT be attached to the April 2016 exam paper. You are not expected to memorize the formulae for this part of the course. If any formulae are needed, these will be provided in the question paper itself.
2016-03-09 You are reminded that the exam will be on Monday 14 March. The Perl 5 Reference Guide (Extract) and Formula collection for the HMM part of the course will be attached to the exam paper.

General Information


Grades will be determined by a written exam at the end of the course (08:30, 14 March 2016). But in order to pass the course you must also submit solutions to specified exercises: one small programming task will be set each week, and there will be an essay on next generation sequencing and metagenomics.

There is an on-line list of students who have completed the practical work (local access).
