Course overview

Computational Epigenomics deals with the analysis of epigenomic modifications in the human genome. In multicellular organisms, such as we are, epigenetic modifications allow to change the access, storage and use of DNA in a cell-specific manner. These modifications change during development and disease and play thus important roles to understand genome regulation. In this course the foundations in epigenomics are explained. Modern algorithms and statistical approaches for the analysis of diverse expigenomics assays are taught. The course is a mixture of theoretical knowledge concerning methods for the analysis of epigenomics data as well as hands-on experience for data analysis. In final project students can enjoy to work on cutting-edge computational epigenomic problems.
