MGCB 815 TOOLS AND ALGORITHMS IN BIOINFORMATICS 3 Credit Hours

This course covers most of the commonly used tools for bioinformatics data analysis. The main objectives of this course are to briefly explain the underling algorithms (methods) of various data analysis tools and to provide hands-on practice opportunities to students using a real datasets. Typically, each bioinformatic tool will be covered in a 3 hours session that includes a lecture and a lab session. This course will introduce the field of bioinformatics and cover the major bioinformatic tools that are used for analyzing a broad spectrum of bioinformatic datasets.
