BIO 300 - Bioinformatics

(also listed as CMPSC 300 )
Credits: 4
An introduction to the development and application of methods, from the computational and information sciences, for the investigation of biological phenomena. In this interdisciplinary course, students integrate computational techniques with biological knowledge to develop and use analytical tools for extracting, organizing, and interpreting information from genetic sequence data. Often participating in team-based and hands-on activities, students implement and apply useful bioinformatics algorithms. During a weekly laboratory session students employ cutting-edge software tools and programming environments to complete projects, reporting on their results through both written assignments and oral presentations.

Prerequisite: BIO 221  and FSBIO 201 , or CMPSC 111 .

Distribution Requirements: QR, SP.
