Program Study Plan

IECB Educational Requirements and Activities | Area 1: Basic and Advanced Computational and Analytical Skills | Area 2: Practical Courses and Workshops | Area 3: FBM Doctoral School Tutorial - Integrated Experimental and Computational Approaches in Biological Research
 

IECB Educational Requirements and Activities

The required IECB classes are grouped into 3 Areas: Area 1) courses teaching fundamental skills in computational biology methods; Area 2) practical courses and workshops in specific application areas; and Area 3) tutorials in which published research illustrating the integrated use of experimental and computational approaches in biological investigation is discussed.

Area 1 and Area 2 activities organized by the CUSO/IIIème Cycle and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics-SIB are part of the regional and national educational activities sponsored by those organizations. Area 3 tutorials are organized by the IECB program together with the Doctoral School.

During the course of their graduate studies, IECB students are required to accumulate 6 ECTS credits from Area 1, 1.5 ECTS credits from Area 2 and 1 ECTS credit from Area 3. Apart from these required 8.5 ECTS credits, students are free to choose according to their interests, subject to IECB Steering Committee approval, to meet the 12 ECTS credits required by the Doctoral School.

Area 1: Basic and Advanced Computational and Analytical Skills

Computational skills courses will focus on fundamental skills in statistics, database use and programming and will be offered at both basic and advanced levels. Students whose skill levels exceed those of the advanced courses will be exempt from these fundamental skills courses.
