The course objectives include: introduction to fundamental bioinformatic approaches and tools allowing analyzing nucleotide and protein sequences, including critical interpretation of analysis outputs; survey of potential uses of bioinformatic analyses to address experimental tasks; and detailed insight into practical aspects of related molecular biology and proteomic methods and approaches.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ320 (19.09.2013)

Students will be able to:

Use publicly accessible bioinformatics tools and nucleotide and protein databases.

Independently design a strategy to analyze the sequence data, critically interpret the outcome of analyses and propose an experimental approach to prove the in silico predictions correct.

Taking advantage from bioinformatic analyses of nucleotide and protein sequences, propose complex, feasible solution for a successful molecular biology experiment.
