From 22nd till 27th of April 2012, the teaching workshop “Genetics and computational biology” took place at the Euiologyropean Faculty of Engineering.

The event was organized for the 1st and 2nd year EFE students. The workshop was held jointly by Dr. Tomasz Zemojtel from Dept. of Computational Molecular Biology at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin and Dr. Magdalena Zabochnicka-Świątek from the Institute of Environmental Engineering at TUCz.

The enclosed list of workskhop subjects (link to workshop’s programme) included the thematic areas specified in the curricula of „Biology and Ecology/Environmental Protection”. A new element of the workshop was the multidisciplinary approach to presenting the area of genetics, which allowed for integration of complementary knowledge from genetics and computational biology. Moreover, an interactive form of the workshop allowed students to acquire a hands-on-experience in using in silico tools for genetics.

The workshop was executed in a computer laboratory and it was composed of 30 hours of lectures and tutorials for the 1st year students as a part of „Biology and Ecology/Environmental Protection I” course; and 15 hours of lectures for the 2nd year students as a part of „Biology and Ecology/Environmental Protection III” course. All of the content presented during the lecture was complemented by case studies that were solved by the participants on individual bases. The particularly interesting form of teaching were the 10 hours of computer lab for the 1st year students during which the participants could get themselves acquainted with genetics databases  available in the internet.

At the end, a written test took place on the 27th of April, which intended to verify the absorption of the workshop contents by EFE students. The workshop will have its final effect in modification of „Biology and Ecology/Environmental Protection” teaching programme, which will be done by Dr M. Zabochnicka-Świątek.
