The students are familiar with basic fields of applications of data collection, data storage, data analysis and data usage in the context of biomedical applications.
They understand the specific challenges of those applications and are able to design and implement data-based applications considering specific biomedical requirements, i.e. they are familiar with the principles of bioinformatics algorithms and can assess and apply them in terms of their potential applications in biomedical analysis. In addition, they should be able to carry out standard bioinformatic analysis independently.
