We have designed a new course on Computational Bioscience and Machine Learning, which was given in 2018 for the first time. Topics such as Bioinformatics, AI, Network Biology, and Genomics are selected to be of relevance for the computer scientist, working biologist, computational scientist, and applied investigator (biotechnology and engineering) with the aim is to support the development of bilingual students. Either coming from a bioscience or computer science background, thus having a firm ground in his/her area of expertise the student will develop a practical and conceptual language supporting the student with a working knowledge to be able to communicate and collaborate efficiently with experts trained outside his/her domain of expertise.
