Hours & Credits
Bioinformatics has found a wealth of applications in medicine, pharmacology, agriculture, and many other industries. This is also a sort of the converging and rapidly growing field of interesting importance to both biologists and computer scientists.
We will expect this course that would introduce both biologists and other fields' students to bioinformatics. Although we wanted this course to explore key concepts in some depth and to keep it on an introductory level.
