BIO380.5 Intro to Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is a rapidly growing field that integrates molecular biology, statistics, and computer science. This course is devoted to the mathematical models and computer algorithms of DNA and protein sequence analysis. In this course, students will learn many of the popular tools for performing bioinformatics analysis and will be introduced to the thinking that drives these algorithms. Various existing bioinformatics methods will be critically described and the strengths and limitations of each will be discussed. (GEN 2008)
