Description of the lab:

The ABLab (Applied Bioinformatics Lab) has been developed to train students in browsing, retrieving and analyzing sequence data. It should bring an understanding how this information can be located, organized and stored. For this purpose every student should perform several exercises and tasks, some of them are common for all participants while others are individual. The best result may be achieved by working independently on a student's own PC (or a PC provided by ABLab) with subsequent discussions of intermediate and final results in class.

All tasks (exercises, research, and the glossary) should be completed using interactive forms of this website. NO additional reports should be submitted to the advisor. The body text of each answer may be illustrated by 1 or 2 figures. When needed, some other files may be uploaded via respective interactive tools. Advisor (Dr. Irina Druzhinina) will check all student contributions online and provide comments. Students are prompted to ask questions personally during class work or using ABLab feedback board.

ABLab is designed for individual work, no groups of students will be formed.

The lab is designed for 18 - 20 participants. Ph.D. students are welcome to take the course based on the individual program.

ABLab has been designed and developed by Dr. Irina Druzhinina in 2007 and is yearly updated; the web support is provided by Mag. Alexey Kopchinskiy; in class and on-line assistance in WS 2017/2018 on sequence alignment and phylogeny by  DI Komal Chenthamara
