Basics of Bioinformatics

This course provides an opportunity to learn and apply the fundamentals of bioinformatics and molecular modeling techniques using the specialized app Molecular World™ and BLAST. We will use these molecular modeling and sequence analysis tools to explore models of small chemicals, proteins, and DNA, and learn how we can use these models to identify cancer-causing mutations, search for drug homologues for various diseases, and understand the function of select anti-viral drugs based on their 3-D models.
