Bioinformatics and Molecular Microbiology
Credit: 3 Units
In this course, you will learn how the genome sequencing technology has revolutionized biology and provided a foundation for new developments in science and medicine. You will become familiar with computational tools that are necessary to analyze genomic data and you will find out what biological questions can be answered by genomic approaches. We will use prokaryotes as the main material for genomic studies, but the core principles that you will learn are also applicable to eukaryotes including humans.
