BIFX 550 Nucleic Acid Sequence Analysis and Protein Modeling

Prerequisite: Admission to the Bioinformatics Certificate or the Biomedical Science program and BIFX 501. Lab fee. This course will begin and extend beyond the basics and prepare students to use sequence and structural information to solve biological problems. This course serves as an intermediate level class for graduate students who plan to work in the areas of computational biology or bioinformatics using available applications. This course will lay foundations for data storage, visualization, manipulation, comparison, and analysis of 1D-protein/DNA sequences and their corresponding experimental/model 3D-structures using existing bioinformatics tools. A basic introduction to scripting will also be included.
