BCMB 422 - Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

3 Credit Hours
An introduction to the cutting-edge tools and approaches biologists and clinicians use to extract information from the vast amounts of genomic and proteomic data becoming available.  Students gain hands-on experience with computational biology tools such as data mining, protein structure manipulation and prediction, interaction network analysis, DNA sequence analysis, gene function analysis, R studio for statistics and data visualization, and dimensionality reduction for large datasets. Students apply these tools to biomedical research questions in course projects.
Contact Hour Distribution: 2 hours lecture and 2 hours lab.
