AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Module “Informatics”

To understand the complete set of subjects (even somewhat differentiated) that form the actual informatics matter. To be able to use, with a correct level of knowledge, most of the tools that the computer science have developed at present.

 

Module “Bioinformatics”

The modern techniques of genome sequencing and analysis of protein sequences produce large amount of data that require the use of informatics technologies and of the web. The aim of this teaching Module is to illustrate the methods used for genome and protein analysis, the algorithms used in Bioinformatics, and the software applications of common usage. Teaching will be carried out through the extensive use of web servers.

TEACHING METHODS

Frontal lessons and Practise
