Teaching

Aktuelle Informationen: Für die Veranstaltung "Diskrete Strukturen in der Biologie" (Vorlesung + Übung) ist ein Moodle-Kurs eingerichtet. Dort wird im Verlauf des Semesters Lehrmaterial (Übungsaufgaben, Skript, kurze Lehrvideos) zur Verfügung gestellt und über aktuelle Änderungen informiert. Zögern Sie dennoch nicht, mich bei Fragen per E-Mail oder Telefon zu kontaktieren; auch Videogespräche sind nach Absprache gerne möglich.
