2nd Course on Introduction to Sequence Analysis
The CNIO Bioinformatics Unit organises an internal Second Course on Introduction to Sequence Analysis, to be held on Tuesday, April 7th 2009, at the CNIO Seminars Room, 3rd floor.
Over the last ten years the amount of biological sequence data available to researchers has increased by several orders of magnitude, and complete genome sequences (nearly nonexistent ten years ago) have become commonplace. Some techniques involved in analyzing nucleotide and amino acid sequences (e.g. BLAST) have become so commonly used in molecular biology that their names have become verbs. This introductory course is aimed at biologists with little or no previous experience, but also at those users who wish to know more about the methods underlying computational sequence analysis tools.
