Examine genome analysis using public biological databases in both UNIX and Windows environments. In this course, you will gain hands-on experience in commercial bioinformatics by analyzing and annotating a full genome through applying and integrating the information, methodology and tools. Using the Perl programming language in a UNIX environment, you will learn to query databases, parse the resulting data, and generate relevant reports. Databases and software covered include NCBI, BLAST/PSI-BLAST, CLUSTALW, PFAM, KEGG, RefSeq and OMIM.
Note: Prerequisites: Completion of "Bioinformatics", "Perl Programming" and "Introduction to Molecular Biology" or equivalent experience/knowledge.
