Scientific literature analysis in bioengineering

(Coursebook not yet approved by the section)

Scientific literature analysis in computational molecular biology

The goal is to learn to analyze a paper critically, asking whether the data presented support the conclusions that are drawn. The analysis is presented in the form of a summary abstract and critical, constructive referee's report.

Practical - Barth Lab

This course will convey the concepts and experimental techniques for studying the signal transduction mediated by receptors across biological membranes.

Synthetic biology

This course will cover fundamentals and approaches at the interface of biology, chemistry, engineering and computer science for the design of biological systems at both theoretical and practical levels. The principal techniques used in diverse fields of synthetic biology will be introduced.
