Applications in Bioinformatics

ENG BF 527

The field of bioinformatics is concerned with the management and analysis of large biological datasets (such as the human genome) for the purpose of improving our understanding of complex living systems. This course introduces graduate students and upper-level undergraduate students to the core problems in bioinformatics, along with the databases and tools that have been developed to study them. Computer labs emphasize the acquisition of practical bioinformatics skills for use in students research. Familiarity with basic molecular biology is a prerequisite; no prior programming knowledge is assumed. Specific topics will include the analysis of biological sequences, structures, and networks.
