Essentials of Bioinformatics

This course enables students to understand methods and approaches in current bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is, by nature, a multidisciplinary endeavor and techniques from many unrelated fields are merged to explore a greater whole. The theoretical bases of these methods are explained in detail, their limitations are examined and recent work to improve methodologies is reviewed. This course will consist of 16 lectures divided into three Modules. Each lecture is approximately 2-3 hours in duration. [MORE]
