BIFX 547 Web-based Bioinformatics and Applications in Life Sciences

Prerequisites: BIFX 501 or BIFX 502. Lab fee. The goal of this course is to provide the students with a more in-depth overview of web-based bioinformatics tools and other freely available tools. As a bioinformatician works to solve specific problems, sometimes it is easier to use the existing, available tools rather than building a new one, thus providing a time-saving approach to the specific task. The course will emphasize a hands-on approach using available tools and public domain data.
