Bioinformatics engineering involves the design of software systems for analysing large quantities of complex and diverse data. This practical course revolves around a guided team project for the design and implementation of a complex system bringing together a variety of tools and methods for analysing genomic data. Methodologies for requirement gathering, system design, project management and documentation will be applied. The project work will be complemented by lectures on formal and practical aspects of engineering design and management, bioinformatics development environments and workflow management systems.
