BTC 4200 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Focuses on bioinformatics and its importance in the sciences. Seeks to apply and understand bioinformatics tools as they pertain to analyses of genomes, protein structure/function, gene families, and molecular evolution. Uses bioinformatics tools to mine databases for information relevant to answering questions relating to molecular structure, function, and evolution. Analyzes relationships between known protein structure and model protein structures. Illustrates how multiple alignments and database searching are used to gather data about gene sequences. Describes how to identify genes and infer gene structure. Differentiates between the types of phylogenetic analyses available and appropriate programs for specific questions. Applies students’ existing content knowledge toward practical bioinformatic applications Offers students an opportunity to develop skills in analysis, problem solving, and communication as applied to bioinformatics.
