Description
BIOINFORMATICS
Presents analysis and manipulation of genomic sequence information to extract meaningful information about genes, gene structure, gene regulation, and gene evolution. A bioinformatics approach will be used to identify coding, non-coding, and regulatory sequences in a variety of plant and animal species. The course will focus on the kinds of information that can be extracted from large DNA sequences in order to understand gene function. Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding our genetic predisposition(s) to disease and the relationship of the human genome to the genomes of other organisms. This course is an elective for Biology majors. Prerequisites: MATH 141 (Introduction to Statistics), BIOLOGY 271 (Cell Biology), BIOLOGY 332 (Genetics) or BIOLOGY 333 (Molecular Biology). Three hours of lecture/computer laboratory per week. Not offered every semester.
