Analysis of Biological Sequences

Instructor: Sarah Wheelan, MD, PhD


Presents an algorithmic approach to modern biological sequence analysis. Provides an overview of the core algorithms and statistical principles of bioinformatics. Topics include general probability and molecular biology background, sequence alignment (local, global, pairwise and multiple), hidden Markov Models (as powerful tools for sequence analysis), gene finding, and phylogenetic trees. Emphasizes algorithmic perspective although no prior programming experience is required. Covers basic probability and molecular biology in enough detail so that no prior probability or advanced biology classes are required.
