Starting with an introduction into basic discrete mathematics, in particular graphtheory, we will turn on to explore their application in biology. The lecture will include topics like: RNA (e.g. folding, combinatorial problems), phylogentics, phenotypespaces (graphproducts ). The special lecture should prepare students for master and Ph.D. theses at the interface between biological problems, bioinformatics and discrete mathematics.
