BMI 576
Introduction to Bioinformatics
  Fall - 3 credits

The goals of this course are to provide an understanding of the fundamental computational problems in molecular biology and a core set of widely used algorithms. This is the first of two courses on bioinformatics. The topics it will cover include: pairwise sequence alignment, multiple sequence alignment, finding genes in DNA sequences, phylogenetic tree construction, and genome mapping and sequencing. This is currently being taught as a special topics course in Computer Sciences. Prerequisites: Math 222 and Computer Sciences 367.

  

BMI 776
Advanced Bioinformatics
  Spring - 3 credits

The goals of this course are to provide an understanding of the fundamental computationalproblems in molecular biology and a core set of widely used algorithms. This is the second of two courses on bioinformatics. The topics it will cover include: probabilistic methods for sequence modeling, gene expression analysis, phylogenetic tree construction, protein structure prediction, RNA modeling, whole-genome analysis, and algorithms for exploiting biomedical text sources. A precursor to this course was taught as a special topics course in Computer Sciences in the Fall 1999 semester. Prerequisites: Computer Sciences 576.
