This handout is also available in PDF.

Biology/Computer Science 295.01 "Special Topic: Bioinformatics"

In this interdisciplinary course, students will explore Bioinformatics, the application of computing tools to problems in the biological sciences, particularly problems related to genetics. Although students will use some existing bioinformatic tools, the foci of the course will be on identifying appropriate biological problems for analysis by computer and on the development of computational tools to support such analysis. Most of the work for this course will be conducted by interdisciplinary teams. Prerequisite: BIO-251 or CSC-151.

Disclaimer: I usually create these pages on the fly, which means that I rarely proofread them and they may contain bad grammar and incorrect details. It also means that I tend to update them regularly (see the history for more details). Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for changes.
