"On 26 June 2000, the completion of the draft sequence of the Human Genome saw the sciences of biology and medicine changed forever. It promised new insights into how our genes shape who we are, and how we function. At the heart of this breakthrough lies a scientific discipline that is now one of the most important knowledge-building tools in current molecular and cellular biology, and healthcare development: bioinformatics."

A.M.Lesk, 2006

Description of the lab:

The ABLab (Applied Bioinformatics Lab) has been developed to train students in browsing, retrieving and analysing sequence data. It should bring an understanding how this information can be located, organized and stored. For this purpose every student should perform several 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 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 additional files may be uploaded via respective interactive tools. Advisor 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 participants. PhD students are welcome to take the course based on individual program.

ABLab has been designed and developed by Dr. Irina Druzhinina, the websupport is provided by Mag. Alexey Kopchinskiy.

Individual tasks: bioinformatic glossary and the research

Common tasks:  exercises

The mission of ABLab is completed when all glossary terms are inserted, research topic is filled and all exercises are done successfully.
