comprises all questions of generating, analyzing and interpreting
biological data, as well as utilization of such knowledge
in biotechnology and medicine.
As biological data are generated on an industrial scale
today, the use of computer-based methods is essential to
any scientific or technical utilization of these data. The
research topics of this Graduate Program in Bioinformatics
range from comparative sequence analysis, analysis of gene
expression, regulation and molecular interaction to the
conputer-based supervision of biotechnical processes.
The graduate program "Bioinformatics"
exists since October 1st, 2000. It is shared between the
faculties of Mathematics
and the Technische
programs financed by Deutsche
The Graduate College Bioinformatics collaborates with the
International NRW Graduate School in Bioinformatics and Genome Research.
