Description: Since the advent of Sanger Sequencing in 1977, computer scientists have been devising algorithms and software tools to interpret and analyze DNA sequences. The field of bioinformatics focuses on computational approaches to solving biological questions. This course will serve as an introduction to widely used algorithms in bioinformatics used for pattern searching, genome assembly, sequence alignment, and clustering of biological data. No prior knowledge of biology is assumed. The class involves several programming assignments. Cross-list: COMP 519.
