BIOINF 575 - Programming Laboratory in Bioinformatics
Section: 001
Term: WN 2009
Subject: Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BIOINF)
Department: MED Bioinformatics
3 (Non-LSA credit).
Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:
Some familiarity with computer programming is assumed.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course will introduce current software tools and information resources in bioinformatics. Topics will include rapid development programming languages (Python, Perl), relational databases (SQL), Java, exploratory data analysis in R and web services programming. The course will introduce computational biology applications (BLAST, BioConductor, Cytoscape and GenePattern). There will be a class project creating an information resource in genomics and molecular biology that will use these tools to retrieve bioinformatics data from multiple internet resources, build an integrated database and deliver web forms and graphical access. Grades will be based on programming exercises and participation in class discussions and cooperative development projects.
