English level:


All teaching activities will be held in Croatian. However, foreign students in mixed groups will have the opportunity to attend additional office hours with the lecturer and teaching assistants in English to help master the course materials. Additionally, the lecturer will refer foreign students to the corresponding literature in English, as well as give them the possibility of taking the associated exams in English.

* Load is given in academic hour (1 academic hour = 45 minutes)

1. - 3. Familiarity with biological databases, network resources and use of specific databases.
3. - 5. Basics of using sequence alignment tools, substitution matrices, dynamic programming.
5. - 7. Familiarity with heuristic methods for searching sequences according to similarity.
7. - 9. Methodology and use of tools for multiple sequence alignment
9. - 11. Basic principles and tools of phylogeny
11. - 13. Structural bases and visualization of spatial structures of macromolecules
13. - 15. Basics of functional genomics, sequencing and genomic bioinformatics.

Students divided into groups will do research on selected examples with the help of professors and assistants.

1. - 10. Through individual projects, they search databases, look for data on epidemiology, genetics and molecular mechanisms of diseases.
10 - 20. After familiarizing themselves with the literature, they move on to searching sequence databases and learn to manipulate sequences through various bioinformatics tools in order to get the necessary information.
20 - 30. The research is rounded off with phylogenetic analysis, classification and visualization of the discovered results.

Students are required to fill out a questionnaire that includes describing their motivation for the course before being approved for enrollment.

The entire application process takes place electronically, and the deadline for completing the questionnaire will be until Wednesday, September 21st, 2022.
