CPSC 7220 - Bioinformatics

(3) Credit Hours

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that provides methods and computational tools to solve and understanding biological data. It combines computer science, statistics, mathematics, and engineering to analyze and interpret biological data. The development of DNA and protein sequencing generates large volume of biological data, which makes computational tools an essential element to analyze and understand biological data. This course covers bioinformatics including statistical and computational techniques to provide a comprehensive knowledge of gene sequence analysis and knowledge discovery from biological data. Prerequisite: CPSC 5210 or department head approval. Differential course fee will be assessed.
