BNFO 650. Sequence Analysis in Biological Systems. 3 Hours.

Semester course; 1 lecture and 2 laboratory hours. 3 credits. Prerequisite: BNFO 601/BIOL 601 or permission of instructor. This course will treat the computational theory behind algorithms that are used for nucleic acid and protein sequence analysis. Students will be exposed to the theory and methodology of computational biology that has led to the development of current sequence analysis software. The objective of the course is to provide students with a basic knowledge of how current software tools have been developed and how they function, which will permit them to then apply this knowledge to the development of new algorithms and technology.
