CS 321 Applications of AI in Bioinformatics

Prerequisite: C/C++, HPC (parallel computing) programming experience. Recommended additional Course consists of selected projects. These projects cover application of AI to some of the relevant problems of analysis of large biological data and generally deal with complex information. Each year problems change. Students get assigned one project and they work either alone or in groups of 2. Students in the interactive discussions with the whole class and the instructor solve the project problems. Students regularly present their progress and defend their approach and results in front of the whole class. During one semester several types of topics are dealt with. Students get direct experience in research methodology, report writing, presentations and most importantly, different ways of approaching solving AI problems
