Learning outcomes

The laboratory presents the students the more recent techniques and algorithms to be used for the biological data interpretation. This laboratory is aimed at covering different areas of bioinformatics: proteomics, genomics, molecular biology and structural biology.

Syllabus

The state-of-art programs and algoritms will be used in the different fields of bioinformatics:

Evolution and phylogenesis

Ab initio gen prediction.
Validation of the predicted genes using gen expression data.

Introduction to Microarray programs and databases.

Protein bioinformatics: structural prediction by the use of the different tecniques (comparative modeling, fold-recofgnition and ab initio fold prediciton)

Functional annotation.
