2016-2017 Course edition.

General information

The course consists of lectures, exercises and assignments.

The courses 'Chemometrics I' and 'Chemometrics for Molecular Life Sciences' will start in week 5, Jan. 31, 2017, with the first lecture. All lectures are on Tuesdays from 8.45 - 10.30 hours (HG00.616; see also the 'Rooster' site). The first seminar is on Monday afternoon, the week after the lecture (HG00.206), the second seminar is one week later, on Monday afternoon (also HG00.206). Most seminars in the weeks thereafter are also on Monday afternoon (HG00.206). The last seminar is rescheduled because of the exam-weeks.

After each lecture the student has one week to do exercises related to that lecture. The results can be discussed, finalized and checked during the first seminar. If the results are correct an assignment is handed out. These assignments can be discussed during the second seminar (as well as the outcome of the previous assignment), one week later. The assignment hand in is 3 days later, on Thursday, the latest.

During the lectures examples will be given of the application of the various chemometrical techniques. However, in order to illustrate the usefulness from an Industrial point of view there will be a guest lecture by G. Mooiweer from industry during the response lecture of March 20 (HG00.206).
