Molecular Bioinformatics - A Hands-on Course


Molecular Bioinformatics – A Hands-on Course

This course aims at providing theoretical and practical knowledge about the several bioinformatic tools commonly used in biological and health sciences research. The course has a strong "hands on" component and covers essential bioinformatics topics such as sequence databases and data retrieval, sequence alignment, nucleotide and protein sequence analysis to infer biological functions, primer and siRNA design, gene ontology search, and multiple databases query for nucleic acid and protein sequence analysis.

By the end of the course the participants must be able to:

- Master essential knowledge of bioinformatics analysis;
- Autonomously use the bioinformatics tools presented, understand its capabilities and limitations, and interpret the results in a self-confident manner;
- Design a research project applying concepts learned during the course.
