CPSC 2900 - Introduction to Bioinformatics Programming

This course is designed to introduce the most important and fundamental concepts, methods, and tools in bioinformatics programming using the scripting language, Perl. Students will be introduced to computational biology concepts and techniques including: the art of programming; rudimentary language syntax, control flow structures, and data structures (scalars, strings, arrays, hashes, etc); file handling; regular expressions; web CGI programming; Genbank, Protein Data Bank & Blast; and BioPERL. The objectives are for students to gain practical programming experience in this ever evolving interdisciplinary field and that they are able to use and develop the bioinformatics tools to exploit modern massive and aggregated biological data. Prerequisites: Completion of all developmental math requirements, a grade of “C” or better in CPSC 1710 , or permission of the Computer Science Head. (3, EXP)
