CS 120 Introduction to Bioinformatics 3 sem. hrs.
(See BIO 120) Bioinformatics is the application of computer power to problems in biology and medicine. This course provides an introduction to the problems addressed by the cross-disciplinary field of bioinformatics, and to some of the tools made available by this technology. Students will use bioinformatics to investigate genome organization, gene structure, and the four levels of protein structure. Students are introduced to molecular visualization tools, sequence analysis software, and on-line sequence comparison tools. A short paper is required, investigating a particular gene, its product, the structure of the product, and its function in the cell. No prerequisites. Offered every fall.
