Biometry and bioinformatics I, fall 2013
Scope, type and goal
Submitting assignments during the two course weeks = 2 cr. Pass/fail.
Extra assignments after the course = 1-3 additional credits.
This short course gives very basic practicals for working with biological sequence data and databases: making sequence queries ("blasting"), introduction to different kind of sequence databases, aligning seqs and clustering them.
If you have taken the course Genetic analysis and molecular evolution previously (or know how to work with biological sequence databases from some other previous course), then Biometry and bioinformatics I is not for you and you can start from Biometry and bioinformatics II.
However, if you already know how to work with sequence data /sequence databases (for example on the basis of Genetic analysis and molecular evolution), you can take this course (without a need to participate the computer sessions) as assignments will not be the same as previously.
The contents of this BBI has previously been the introductory part of the course Genetic analysis and molecular evolution. If you have taken this old course (or know the abovementioned basics from some other course),
- you can do the assignments and get the credits (the assignments will not be identical with those you have already done in Genetic analysis and molecular evolution)
- but you need not come to attend the sessions, starting Tuesday, 10.9, 14.15 - 17.00 in C128. In fact: do not come because the course will be very big, 24 computers, 38 students.
So, if this address http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ is familiar, don´t come, just wait for the assignments to appear in course webpage.
