 Objectives

 Principle objectives are:

  • To explain the principles behind commonly used bioinformatics methods so that they can be used to best effect.  The methods covered will include:
    • Pairwise sequence alignment
    • Searches based on sequence alignment scores (e.g. BLAST)
    • Multiple sequence alignment
    • Simple phylogenetic reconstruction using neighbour-joining methods 
  • To discuss how tools such as hidden Markov models and online databases such as the Gene Expression Omnibus can be used to infer information about the timing of gene expression and the localisation and function of gene products.
  • To introduce the latest sequencing-based methods and show how they are used to understand gene expression, and how the data can be analysed to provide biological insights.

Outcomes 

Students will be able to apply the most commonly used bioinformatics tools and databases in an effective way, and understand the limitations of the techniques.
