BIOL 274 Introduction to Bioinformatics
The integration of genomic and information technologies makes many once thought unattainable scientific pursuits possible such as the human genome project. The era of bioinformatics has arrived. Fusing experimental and computational methods in studying complex biological questions becomes a routine process for today's biologists. This course provides a comprehensive overview of bioinformatics-the application of computational and information sciences in studying biology. The focus is to learn prevalent computational approaches used by research biologists.
