Are you interested in exploring biological systems through the lens of computer science, then check out CSC 397 CSC 397: Topics in Computer Science (Topic: Computational Biology). No biology background is required
Computational Biology lies in the intersection of Computer Science & Biology and is the study of how biological information is organized and analyzed in biological ecosystems. Topics will include surveying publicly available databases for all domains, understanding genomics file formats and analyzing biological data using UNIX command line interface and PYTHON programming. Students will apply problem-solving and programming skills towards implementing a tool that will analyze complex biological data sets.
This course will be offered as a Global Learning Exchange (GLE) in collaboration with São Paulo State University (UNESP), Brazil. Have fun working in teams while gaining cross-cultural exposure.
