Nowadays the use of computational methods and the production of biological big data is more and more common in the everyday activities of any research lab, and it is very important that new generation of scientists in biological research are comfortable using these technologies and analysing their data. This is one of the reasons why… Read More When Python becomes more than a snake type
Being a master student not only involves attending lectures, writing assays and studying for exams, thankfully. Although all of these are very important for our future, while being a student in Stockholm we have access to many more activities for networking and developing our career paths. The students of the Molecular Techniques in Life Science… Read More Getting a PhD mentor!
Have you ever felt amazed by the new methods developed in a molecular biology paper? Althoug I have no experience as a wet or dry lab method developer, I am always inspired by the researchers who develop new cheaper, smarter or more efficient technologies. This is probably one of the reasons why I enjoyed so… Read More Course review in Applied Gene Technology and Large-Scale Data Analysis
The third semester of the Molecular Techniques in Life Science (MTLS) Programme started in August for me, it’s crazy how fast time is passing by! This semester is organized by KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and includes courses in Clinical Biotechnology, Gene Technology and Bioinformatics and Systems Biology. One of the first courses we have… Read More How is Biotechnology applied in the clinics? – Course Review
Comparative Genomics has been the last course of the second semester of the Molecular Techniques in Life Science (MTLS) Master Programme. During this course, taught in Stockholm University, we put into practice our coding skills by doing many practical work in the fields of phylogenetics and phylogenomics, network biology and gene prediction amongst others! … Read More Creating a gene predictor: course review in Comparative Genomics
As the second semester of the Molecular Techniques in Life Science (MTLS) Joint Master Programme is comming to an end it’s time for another course review! During the months of March and April we had a course in Methods in Molecular Life Science, or MeMoLS as we know it. This course mixes a bit of… Read More Molecular Techniques in Life Science students and the X-Yeast: Course review in MeMoLS
The second semester of the first year of the Joint Master’s Programme in Molecular Techniques in Life Science (MTLS) is continuing at the Frescati Campus of Stockholm University. After the Bioinformatics course that we took in the beginning of the semester, this last month we changed fields to biochemistry and structural biology to focus on… Read More What do archaeology and structural biochemistry have in common?
