BIOINF 575 - Programming Laboratory in Bioinformatics
Section: 002
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BIOINF)
Department: MED Bioinformatics
3 (Non-LSA credit).
Requirements & Distribution:
With permission of instructor.
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 introduces the principles and application of general computer programming, relational databases, and statistical programming as tools to solve problems in bioinformatics data analysis. General programming is taught using the object oriented language Python and statistical programming and graph generation is introduced in R. The relational database language SQL is taught in conjunction with database design, construction and querying. Packages that extend the capabilities of Python are explored, and in the past have included topics such as high performance numerical computing in Numpy, XML parsing, database connectivity, and advanced graphics. A stress is placed on integrating Python, SQL, and R with other programs to build data processing pipelines or other tools. Grades are based on programming exercises, participation in class discussions, and cooperative development of group projects. Some familiarity with programming concepts is recommended, but motivated students with knowledge of a bioinformatics application area and a logical approach to problem solving can succeed in this course.
