Biomolecules Folding and Disease
The course Laboratory of Bioinformatics 1 (66563)
includes in the second semester a 60-hours module given by
The course director is Prof. Rita Casadio.
The module is running from March 13 to May 3, 2018 in the Laboratory of Bioinformatics at the ground floor of Via San Giacomo 9/2 (back entrance).
This page will include all the slides and materials of the lectures.

In this page we included the
evaluation form anonymously compiled by the
participants to evaluate the quality of our course. Answers submitted with
numbers from 1 (No) to 4 (Yes) have been included in the following statistics
calculated by R. The evaluation form was compiled by 14 participants which rated
the course with an average score of 3.3 over 4.
The received positive and negative comments will be published soon.
