Bioinformatics involves the integration of computers, software tools, and databases in an effort to address biological questions. Bioinformatics approaches are often used for major initiatives that generate large data sets. Two important large-scale activities that use bioinformatics are genomics and proteomics. Genomics refers to the analysis of genomes. A genome…
Do you have a copy of your own genome sequence on your iPod? In this session, we’ll use the story of the human genome project to discuss how technology has revolutionized biological research. We’ll highlight recent breakthroughs in genomics and discuss the relevancy of bioinformatics in your classroom.
The Bioinformatics Workshop is a three-day intensive training workshop that AMBL offers to a professional audience. Current topics in bioinformatics, genomics and proteomics are covered. Participants are introduced to common tools and database resources for bioinformatics. Practical exercises and guided tours give workshop participants hands-on experience with bioinformatics searches, tasks, and analyses.
