ECEN 450/850/4500/8506
Prereqs: Computer programming language and ECEN 305/(UNO) ECEN 3050 or IMSE 321 or STAT 380/(UNO) STAT 3800 or equivalent.
This course examines how information is organized in biological sequences such as DNA and proteins and will look at computational techniques which make use of this structure. During this class various biochemical processes that involve these sequences are studied to understand how these processes effect the structure of these sequences. In the process bioinformatics algorithms, tools, and techniques which are used to explore genomic and amino acid sequences are also introduced.
