BIOL 2105 - Biology/Chemistry. Introduction to Computational Science and Informatics (3)

An introduction to informatics, including data mining via the Internet, data warehousing, and skills required to present and publish data in an effective manner. The emerging area of bioinformatics and use of biological databases containing protein or nucleic acid sequences will be emphasized along with relevant software. The course also will familiarize students with construction and use of computational models to study problems of scientific interest. The necessary mathematical background as well as data acquisition, evaluation, management, and visualization/presentation methods will be covered. Students will design and complete their own computational projects using these skills. (Three lecture hours per week)
