Bioinformatics: A Practical User Introduction new (1 of 3) Finished 09:30 - 17:30 Department of Genetics, Room G12

This course sets out to introduce simple computing tools for molecular biologists. It is intended for users with a reasonable background in molecular biology but little or no experience of using the available computer resources. The course is based around an investigation into the disease aniridia. We have chosen a well researched human topic as it allows us best to demonstrate how information can be obtained both by analysis of raw sequence data and by interrogation of information resources where previously determined facts are organised and stored. Further information for this session is available.
