Course Overview

Modern day biology has generated massive amounts of data but very few experts to analyze this data. A course in Genomics and Bioinformatics will teach students how to use computer algorithms to analyze the data. Students learn applications of genomics to biomedical and biological research by performing computational exercises using databases. Topics include genome sequencing gene prediction, genetic variation, sequence database searching, multiple sequence alignment, evolutionary tree construction, protein structure prediction, proteomic analysis, interaction networks and use of genome browsers among other topics.
