Bioinformatics has become an increasingly important field of biology given the massive expansion of biological information (e.g., genome sequences). This course teaches three things: (1) Key algorithms used in computational biology underlying database searching, sequence alignment, RNA structure folding, and fuzzy sequence searching among other thing; (2) Practical Bioinformatics tools for molecular biologists that could immediately be used in research labs; and (3) Bioinformatics programming skills.
