Instructor: Dominik Heider
Center for Medical Biotechnology, Department of Bioinformatics, University of Duisburg, Essen
Duration: 1,5
Schedule: March 24, 2011 - h. 16.00
Venue: Meeting room (building B)
Topics: Today, cutting edge research is being conducted at the intersection of the fields of cryptography, steganography and molecular genetics. DNA has emerged as a promising new carrier medium for hidden information and DNA-based watermarks, as a special kind of DNA steganography. DNA-based watermarks are helpful tools to identify the unauthorized use of genetically modified organisms protected by patents.
Assessment: A project to be arranged with the intructor.
