Course Descriptions

BIOL 39500 Genes + Proteins = Big Data

Session Offered:

Spring Credit 3

Prerequisites:

BIOL 23100 and 24100

Description:

In the late 20th century, biology was transformed into a big data science by the development of high throughput methods for DNA sequencing and protein structure analysis.  DNA sequences, protein sequences, genomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes have become ubiquitous in biology, and have permeated every domain of biological knowledge. This course will provide an introduction to using biological data resources and bioinformatics tools especially those related to sequence and structure, and concepts and approaches needed to use and understand biological big data.
