BIO 340 - Bioinformatics

The deluge of DNA and protein sequence information due to genome sequencing projects (e.g. Human Genome Project) has given rise to bioinformatics, a burgeoning new industry. This course will train students in computer technology, to understand and interpret biological and biochemical data. We will focus on database and sequence comparisons, genomics and proteomics analysis, computer simulation and modeling, utilization of software and hardware, and laboratory data collection and analysis.
