FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOINFORMATICS
The proposed course is framed for UG students in the life science or biological sciences domain. Through this course, the students will be able to address some questions like, How do we find potentially harmful mutations in your genome? How can we reconstruct the evolutionary Tree of Life? How do we compare related genes from different species? These are just three of the major questions in modern biology that can only be answered using bioinformatics approaches. The course will delve into computational ideas used in biology as well as let students apply existing resources that are used in practice every day by bioinformatics professionals. The course offers an opportunity for students who possess a biological background to become more familiar with the biological process occurring within an organism at genetic level.
