Computational Molecular Biology
|Offered This Year?
Processing molecular biology data (DNA, RNA, proteins) has become central to biological research and a challenging area for Computer Science research. Important objectives are molecular sequence analysis, recognition of genes and regulatory elements, molecular evolution, protein structure, comparative genomics. This course models the underlying biology in the terms of Computer Science and presents the most significant algorithms of molecular computational biology. Prerequisites: CSCI0160, CSCI0180 or CSCI0190, and CSCI0220, or consent of instructor.
