BIO 392 Bioinformatics and Genomics

Bioinformatics is the use of computer databases and algorithms to analyze the complete protein, mRNA, and DNA sequences that comprise an organism's genome. This course reviews the tools and concepts of bioinformatics analysis, including sequence databases, next generation DNA sequencing technology, functional genomics, and whole genome assembly and annotation. The computer-based laboratory component provides students with training in several command-line and web-based bioinformatics tools.




BIO 210; BIO 110 is not required but is strongly recommended.
