Genomics describes the determination of the nucleotide sequence as well as many further analyses used to discover functional and structural gene information on all the genes of an organism. Topics include the methods and results of analysis on a genome-wide scale as well as a discussion of the implications of this research. Bioinformatics describes the computational analysis of gene sequences and protein structures on a large scale. Topics include sequence alignment, biological database design, geometric analysis of protein structure, and macromolecular simulation. [Blue Book Entry]
This course can either be taken as an integrated semester-long course (452a) or as separate modules in genomics (752a1) and bioinformatics (752a2, starting 18 October).
Meeting from 1:00-2:15 PM on Mondays and Wednesday, in Bass 305.
First meeting: Bass 305, 1:00-2:15 PM, Wednesday 1 September 1999.
MB&B Department, Bass building, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06520
Genomics Module, 752a1
