BIOL 5240 Computational Foundations of Bioinformatics (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Biology is a field increasingly dominated by high-throughput methods, yielding large data sets which require data analysis using both public domain/commercial software as well as new algorithms to be implemented in a programming language. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary area concerned with the application of mathematics, statistics, and programming to solve mainstream problems in biology. In this course, we will learn basic bioinformatics computer skills: UNIX, python and perl programming, and parsing biological databases.
