About This Course
Introductory Bioinformatician Course Allows You To Level-up Your Bioinformatician Skills From Basic to Introductory Level
Being a Bioinformatician means you’ve to learn how to retrieve and analyze biological data in the most efficient way, to learn how to align & analyze biological sequences to predict the evolutionary histories between them, to find out the conserved patterns, to learn how to predict coding regions or genes from a raw nucleotide sequence, and much more.
One of the biggest applications of Bioinformatics is the prediction of 3D structures of biological molecules from their (1D) linear sequences. It is important to analyze the protein structures, because of the fact that the structural features of proteins can shed light on their biological functions.
To efficiently deal with huge genomic and proteomic data often requires writing short scripts or patches of code to computationally analyze the biological datasets, rather than comparing and analyzing such huge datasets manually. Hence, the major part of Bioinformatics revolves around analyzing biological datasets computationally.
In this course you’ll learn the fundamentals of Bioinformatics. Along with the most commonly utilized biological databases, how to find conserved patterns and variable regions within sequence alignments & analysis and perform phylogenetic analysis to find out the evolutionarily related species/sequences, you’ll also be able to predict, visualize and evaluate 3D structures of proteins. You’ll also be able to write your first script in Python & R, Python data structures such as lists, strings, dictionaries and various built-in functions and packages provided by R. Along with, how to read/write Bioinformatics files, work with loops and how to control the flow of your program and script.
Joining and learning from the Introductory Bioinformatician Course can enhance your biological career by learning through various useful & informative pre-recorded lectures on Bioinformatics tools, databases, servers and biological programming in Python.
- The target audience for the Introductory Bioinformatician Course are biologists, beginner or intermediate Bioinformaticians or data analysts with no or little experience in applications of computational bioinformatics and analysis.
- However, a superficial understanding of molecular biology and logic development for coding is expected from you before you join the course.
- Bioinformatics is quite easy to get started in, even if you lack a proper understanding of the underlying concepts of Bioinformatics databases, servers, tools and the algorithms working behind them.
