This course covers basic techniques mainly algorithmic in nature to answer many questions in molecular biology. We will go through this journey with many case studies and a list of tentative topics is listed below.

Tentative Course Content

1. Introduction
2. Sequencing and Microarray
3. Genome assembly
4. Tools and Databases
5. Computational gene hunting (gene predication -HMM)
6. Alignment of bio-molecular sequences (Local, Global, DP, Blast, multiple)
7. Genomic regulation
8. Protein folding
9. Genetic variation
10.RNA world
11. Systems Biology (gene, protein and membrane machine)
                      --Human and Pathogens
                  --Cancer genomics (Tumor complexity)
