LMP1107H: Bioinformatics in LMP
Who can attend
Graduate students (MSc and PhD) in the research stream.
Course enrollment is capped at 20 students.
We give preference to LMP graduate students.
Bioinformatics is used in all areas of biology.
This module will introduce students to approaches used in the analysis of molecular sequence data.
This course is not intended for those who primarily intend to use bioinformatics, but rather to allow you to understand the results of work that complements third research approaches.
Each week, we will discuss a different topic with hands-on use of online tools to analyze molecular data.
