Keeping pace with the rapidly developing world of information technology is a need that Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) helps to fill with openhpi.de. openHPI works according to the principle of “Massive Open Online Courses” (MOOC): * openHPI courses match the high-quality curriculum at HPI, Germany’s highest ranked computer science institute. On the basis of instructional videos, interactive self-tests and practical exercises, participants receive in-depth knowledge on multi-faceted topics in IT technology. * openHPI courses are conducted entirely online. All material can be accessed from any device that is Internet-accessible, whether desktop, laptop, Smartphone or tablet. * openHPI courses are open: that means participation is free and there are no prerequisites of any kind. * openHPI courses enable individual participants to join in a virtual learning community with other participants. Lively discussion forums and virtual learning groups encourage a stimulating exchange of questions and a collaborative learning of the subject. * openHPI courses are targeted at different audiences. Part of our courses address a general audience and introduce the foundations of information technology, e.g., the design and structure of the Internet and the World Wide Web, the structure and operation of database systems or security in information technology. Other courses are geared towards ICT professionals who wish to keep up with the very latest innovations in computer science research, e.g., In-Memory Data Management, the Semantic Web, or Multicore and Cloud Computing. Courses are conducted in German and English.

Course Description

Welcome to the class: we are very excited that you are interested in learning more about the foundations of life. In this openHPI course, we will give an introduction about components of human cells and their functions. We dive into the cell core to explore the Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA), its structure, and how it stores the code of life. Furthermore, we will explore how to discover genetic variants and mutations and how to assess their impact on the cell functions and the whole human body. Ultimately, we will outline how individual genetic variants can be connected to complex diseases, such as cancer. Just two decades ago, all these tasks would have been impossible due to missing knowledge about the DNA and a lack of computational power. As a result, you will learn basic concepts about how to incorporate latest computer science aspects to explore the code of life interactively.
