The course is a basic introduction to the concepts of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
This course aims to introduce students to the concepts of biology and the ability to analyze biological data. Considering the biological data (DNA, RNA, proteins) as digital information the implementation of algorithms for processing and producing usefuf biological insights gets introduced.
Upon successful completion of this course the student / she will be able to :
- Understand the basic concepts of Biology and Computational Biology
- Has knowledge of methods and techniques for transforming biological data into digital information
- Is able to apply computational algorithms to solve biological data .
- Has learned to compose computational solutions for biological problems .
- Has learned to evaluate computational results in terms of their usefulness in molecular biology and genetics research .
