MSCI 814 - Bioinformatics I

Cr Hrs: 2 (32-0-0)
This course consists of eleven 2.5-hour segments. The material will be introduced in a brief Lecture for 30-45 minutes as necessary. The majority of time will be spent using computer applications of bioinformatics tools. The course is designed to provide practical training in bioinformatics methods including accessing the major public sequence databases, using the five BLAST tools to find sequences, analyzing protein and nucleic acid sequences, detecting motifs or domains in proteins, assembling protein sequences from genomic DNA, detecting exons and finding intron-exon boundaries, aligning sequences (Clustal W), and making phylogenetic trees (Phylip). Basic proteomics methods and comparative genomics will also be discussed. Students should leave the course with a working knowledge of how to carry out research using these tools.
