BI 420 Introduction to Bioinformatics (Fall: 3)

Prerequisite: A genetics course (BI315, BI319 or BI417)
Bioinformatics is an emerging field at the intersection of biology, mathematics and computer science. It harnesses the power and speed of computers to analyze the molecules essential for life. This introductory course requires that students have a basic understanding of molecular biology, genetics, and the Internet, but does not require extensive background in mathematics or programming. Students will learn bioinformatic tools from the public domain, public databases, and simple programming tasks in MATLAB and PERL.
