Molecules for bioinformatics, fall 2010


Sirkka-Liisa Varvio


4 cu


  • This course is suitable for (statistics) students with planned orientation to biometry and also for other students interested in all-round-education on biological applications of statistical inference.
  • In  Bioinformatics Master program (MBI) this is one of the optionally compulsory courses and in Aalto-TKK-MBI a compulsory course.
  • In Aalto-TKK-MBI the accessory course ´Genetic analysis´ is Bfms Module I.
    The accesory course (reading group) Genetic analysis, 2 cu
  • is based on the book Griffiths et al. Introduction to genetic analysis, 9th ed. (9780716799023)
  • The course covers Chapters 1, The genetic approach to biology, Ch 7, DNA structure and replication, Ch 8, RNA transcription and processing, Ch 9, Proteins and their synthesis, Ch 13, Genomics.
  • This is the basic knowledge of molecular genetics assumed in other bioinformatics courses.

The course ´Molecules for bioinformatics’ introduces characteristics of molecules as statistical and computational challenges. Part of the lectures will be in computer class.
During the course home-work (exercises) will be given. These are to submitted as informed later.

*Submitting exercises gives 20 points, exam gives 40 points. Passing the course with grade 1 requires 30 points, and the limit for maximum grade 5 is 50 points of the total 60.

*The lectures do not follow any specific book. Lecture notes will be available here at the beginning of each lecture.
