Hardware / Software used
The computer exercises can be executed from any internet connected computer (Mac, Linux, Windows) with a modern browser
(e.g. FireFox, Safari or a recent version of Internet Explorer - a browser which supports tabs is recommended) and Java installed.
Java is used in some exercises to run visualization software. Link: www.java.com.
A computer is necessary for most of the exercises, therefore bring your own. It is possible to borrow a computer at CBS. In that case send a mail ASAP
to the course coordinator.
We recomment the JEdit text editor for use on sequence files, since it is well suited for this purpose and is platform independent.
For the protein structure exercise the PyMOL software (also cross-platform) will be used.
