Description/topics:
Course Description:
The avalanche of genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, clinical data… is
changing the computational education of undergraduate students in bioinformatics
who will face the challenge of analyzing complex, highly multidimensional data
sets in their life science career. This course introduces computational ideas aimed
at solving real biological problems that can be applied and further developed for
the analysis of complex data sets. The goal is to provide an understanding of what
is bioinformatics and what we can do with it by engaging students’ problem
solving skills rather than strictly presenting bioinformatics tools and their use.
3 lectures hours/week, 1 computer lab hour/week
Lecture Topics:
 Genomes
 Gene transcription and regulation
 Evolution
 Phylogeny
 Regulatory networks
 Data Integration & System Biology
 Concluding Remarks
