Course Description:
Research in the biological sciences is increasingly dependent on large datasets such as those generated by DNA sequencing and microarrays. This is also true for diagnostics and medicine. Analysis of these datasets requires a range of skills and knowledge drawn from computer science, physical sciences and mathematics and statistics as well as biological sciences. Bioinformatics is the discipline that integrates algorithms and methods from these disciplines to model biological systems and infer patterns hidden in complex data. You must have completed BIO2092 Genomics and Introductory Bioinformatics (or BIO2077 Evolution and Informatics or BIO2087 Genomics and Biotechnology) in order to take this module. This is an optional module for final year students of BSc Biological Sciences, BSc Biological Sciences (Molecular and Cellular Biology), BSc Biochemistry, BSc Biological and Medicinal Chemistry, BSc Human Biosciences and BSc Medical Sciences. This is an optional module for students of Flexible Combined Honours in Biochemistry or Biological Sciences: Molecular and Cellular Biology.
