BIOL 480/580 Bioinformatics

Credits: (3-0) 3

Bioinformatics is a rapidly growing field that comprises computational methods for collecting, organizing, and analyzing large amounts of biological data. This course introduces computational tools for study of biological sequence data. For example, several modules including sequence-based similarity, sequence pairwise and multiple alignments, cellular localization, alternative open reading frame, structure-based evidence, enzymatic function, duplication and degradation, horizontal gene transfer (constructing phylogenetic trees), genomics, and proteomics will be introduced.

Prerequisites: BIOL 331 , BIOL 341 , or BIOL 371 ; CHEM 464/564 ; or permission of instructor.
Notes: Students enrolled in BIOL 580 will be held to a higher standard than those enrolled in BIOL 480.
