Bioinformatics and sequence analysis, 7.5 cr


Bioinformatics, the application of computational methods to biological and biomedical problems, is a rapidly growing field. A large amount of data is being generated in the post genomic era through research in genomics, proteomics, and structural biology. It is therefore crucial that modern biochemists and biologists have knowledge of bioinformatics.

This course provides both a practical and a theoretical overview of database searching, sequence alignment, phylogenetic and gene prediction, and genome analysis. The practical exercises exemplify how computational methods can be applied to real-world investigations of problems of biomedical and biological relevance.
