Rules for Exams and Assignments in the courses:

  • Fundamentals of Bioinformatics
  • Principles of Bioinformatics
  • Research Questions in Bioinformatics
  • Algorithms in Sequence Analysis
  • Structural Bioinformatics
  • Bioinformatics for Translational Medicine

Final Grade:

  • The final grade of a course is the weighted average of all components (each assignment, project, exam)
  • The grade of each component must be at least 5.0 in order to pass the course


  • You can only take the final exam, if all assignments have been handed in.
  • You are allowed one resit of your final exam, this resit needs to take place before the end of the next period, and will generally be an oral exam.


  • Feedback on assignments will only be given during practical sessions -- please attend and ask questions! Assignment grades should not be considered feedback.
  • For each day of unauthorised delay after the deadline, an assignment will incur a penalty of 0.5 point subtracted from the final mark for this assignment.
  • An extension to the deadline may be granted, but only if you request an extension from the coordinator before the deadline
  • Late assignments will not be graded before the end of the course.
  • You can only resubmit one assignment (in case of an extended deadline or scored under a 5.0). This assignment needs to be handed in before the end of the next period.
