Introduction to Bioinformatics

  • College Of Computing & Information Technology |


This course is designed to give students both a theoretical background and practical skills needed for bioinformatics. Students will become familiar with a variety of currently available genomic and proteomic databases. Assessment will be based upon performance on computer assignments and exam questions. Students will be able to search and retrieve information from genomic and proteomic databases, as well as compare and analyze sequences, construct phylogenetic trees. Students will also become familiar with the principles and applications of microarrays, perform predictions of protein structure and function, comparative genomic analysis.
