|BIIN 430 - BIOINFORMATICS: LECTURE AND LAB|
The Bioinformatics course is designed to provide hands-on introduction to this emerging technological science for students of Bioinformatics, Biology, Biochemistry, health sciences, computer science and other related fields. In this course, students will learn about the major issues concerning representation, analysis and application of biological, molecular and biochemical information, especially from computational point of view. This course consists of integrated lecture and laboratory. The course will be taught in an Internet equipped computer lab. It contains exercises to acquaint the students with the latest Internet based as well as commercial bioinformatics tools and resources for studying biological information and a variety of biological data analysis. All the students will present seminars and work on an end-of-semester research project as part of the course requirements. The lectures of the course will mostly focus on introduction to various computational methods for solving problems in genome and protein analysis. Strengths and limitations of each method will also be discussed. Some of the topics to be covered in the lectures are: Fundamentals of Gene Structure and Function, Database Searches, Molecular Sequence Analysis, Genomics, Gene Identification, Proteomics and Structure-Function Predictions. No programming skills required. However, prior exposure to personal computers, e-mail, and the Internet is essential. Lab Fee.
