Introduction, scope, history, limitations and applications of bioinformatics,
bioinformatics alignment tools such as BLAST and FASTA will be covered an insight into
the future challenges in Bioinformatics will be provided.
Determination of genes, promoters, promoters termination and gene sequences and
gene homology determination of primary secondary and tertiary structure of protein by
computer programming, sequence comparison and determination of conserved regions and
This course is an introductory course offered to the students of chemistry department who opt biohemistry in MS. The course covers sequence alignment, types of alignments (global and local), sequence homology, alignment tools BLAST and FASTA. Gene search and alignment of any given sequence with genes.
Course Learning Outcomes
After this course the students will be able to use different ways of sequence alignment, they will be able to design primers for their work, analyse these primers and insilico hybridization of these primers with the gene sequence. they will do BLAST analysis of any gene with query sequence.They will be able to go for advance courses of bioinformatics.
