This course will develop your ability to undertake research in bioinformatics. Drawing on existing datasets, you will design and complete a research project. The aim is for most projects to be based on real-world problems with data provided in collaboration with a research partner. The training, practice and critical evaluation of the research will be carried out in groups, and you will communicate your research findings using spoken, statistical and written skills. The course consists of regular lectures/tutorials and project group meetings, supported by web-based resources. It concludes with a public conference, where you will present your findings. The emphasis is on students working together to solve real-world bioinformatic problems using skills that are transferable to the workplace.
