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.

Area 3: FBM Doctoral School Tutorial - Integrated Experimental and Computational Approaches in Biological Research

Information for the inscription with the Doctoral School: please use this link

Reasoning and Logic in Experimental and Computational Biology
ECTS: 1

Objective: Tutorial in the thematic field "Integrated Experimental and Computational Biology"
Modern, high throughput data generation methods allow the production of comprehensive data sets and thus a quantitatively unique analysis of many biological phenomena.
The tutorial "Reasoning and Logic in Experimental and Computational Biology" will aim at illustrating the unique conceptual approaches to appropriate experimental design, data analysis and data interpretation required when using high throughput methods.

Content: Presentation and discussion of published examples of the application of high throughput DNA sequencing and other genomic methods, applied to a range of different biological questions.

Evaluation: Students will be evaluated based on their participation in the faculty-moderated discussions.

 

Please note:
Each PhD student has to take part successfully to 2 tutorials during the first year. For the IECB, you have to attend to a second one, which you can choose on the list.
