Learning outcomes

The course aims to introduce the student to bioinformatics, providing basic notions basically focused on the analysis of both nucleotide and protein sequences. The course will provide both theoretical and practical bases of algorithms, programs and methods for searching and analyzing sequence data con-tained in biological databases. At the end of the course students will be able to: Navigate among different biological databases and know how and where retrive the data Analyze sequence data by searching similarity in database Compare, analyze and manage sequence data using different types of programs for sequence align-ments.
