We now have more than 90% of the human genome sequence. An interdisciplinary effort between molecular biologists and computer scientists is needed to extract the relevant biological information from this genome, and to understand not only the DNA itself, but the RNA and protein sequences that are made from it, and how they work together to make life possible. In this course we will cover the computational methods used analyze the data generated from the human and other genome projects, and from genome-wide studies of gene expression, human variation, etc.
