ECEN 850: Bioinformatics

Instructor(s): TBD

Number of Credit Hours: 3

Crosslistings: ECEN 450

Prerequisites: Computer programming language and ECEN 305/(UNO) ECEN 3050 or IMSE 321 or STAT 380/(UNO) STAT 3800 or equivalent.

Description: Examination of how information is organized in biological sequences such as DNA and proteins and computational techniques which make use of this structure. Various biochemical processes that involve these sequences are studied to understand how these processes affect the structure of these sequences. In the process bioinformatics algorithms, tools, and techniques which are used to explore genomic and amino acid sequences are also introduced.
