Seminar: Fundamental concepts and tools for bioinformatic analysis
This seminar focuses on the principles behind a variety of bioinformatic analyses, to facilitate the understanding, use and development of more advanced computational methods. Goals:
1. Get an understanding of the basic approaches to common problems in the analysis of biological data.
2. Acquire an overview of some of the most popular computational tools.
3. Improve the criteria for selection and development of bioinformatic tools.

Seminar: The ongoing global mass extinction: finding ways out of the biodiversity crisis
The aim of this course in conservation biology is to obtain profound knowledge about the ongoing biodiversity crisis and to think about ways out of this crisis. We will first cover the scientific basis behind the anthropogenic global mass extinction and what steps have already been taken to stop this mass extinction. Next, we will discuss different strategies to halt the biodiversity crisis. Finally, we will devise a summary of the results and a strategy for public outreach. This seminar is open to all students of biology, including aspiring teachers.

Students will develop in-depth knowledge of a real-life biological problem which is threatening life on Earth - the human-mediated mass extinction of species.
