Intro to Bioinformatics

This class uses current genomic and proteomic databases to look at the basics of Life and Quasi-Life from the point of view of a gene. The class emphasizes finding and comparing information about a gene by exploring its link to a disease, its DNA structure on a chromosome, its RNA structure during transcription, its protein structure, its occurrence in diverse organisms and what this teaches us about evolution. The class consists of a sequence of topics and an exercise for each of these topics. The instructor follows the topic through with a gene (or a protein, or an allele, etc.) and then the students replicate that effort with a particular gene (or protein) of their choice.
