BCHB 514 - Intro to Bioinformatics
The sequencing of the human genome that was completed in 2001 and the explosion of ”omic data” has accelerated our understanding of basic genetics and how we think of biology.  We are now in the “omic” era of molecular biology that has given birth to the new field of Bioinformatics.  All this data can be used meaningfully for biological and clinical research only if we can extract the relevant functional information from them and convert biological data into knowledge of biological systems.  Fortunately, by using bioinformatics we can make headway in understanding and extracting relevant biological information from these sequences.  The aim of this course is to introduce the various tools and resources that are available as applicable to biomedical research.  This course is highly experiential with both lectures and “hands-on” sessions.
