Computational Biology and Molecular Design

BTEC350 (Not Liberal Arts) $ Computational Biology and Molecular Design 4 hrs. 3 crs. Mathematical methods and computer-based applications are required to solve complex biological and biochemical problems. These problems often involve enormous data sets. Specific applications include computer-based analysis of physical mapping of DNA, construction of phylogenetic trees, and molecular structure prediction. Preq: BIO 301, CHEM 233; MATH 121. 2 hours lecture, 2 hours laboratory. Lecture presentations will be augmented with computer-based laboratory instruction.
