Goals and contents

The goal of this course is to survey the most important bioinformatics tools and algorithms. This course provides insights into basic bioinformatics algorithms including pairwise sequence comparison, multiple sequence alignment, construction of phylogenetic trees (genealogies of animals or viruses), and microarray data analysis, along with recent machine learning methods and their applications in bioinformatics. All tools and algorithms discussed in this course represent the current state of the art. Basics of molecular biology and biotechnology are provided up to the minimum that is necessary to understand the idea behind the bioinformatics tools and algorithms discussed in this course.
