This course will introduce students to various algorithmic principles driving bioinformatics. Algorithm design techniques such as brute force, branch and bound, greedy approach, divide and conquer technique, and dynamic programming will be discussed. Students will learn the application of these design techniques in a wide range of biological problems such as sequence alignment, sequence homology searching, motif finding, gene prediction, gene expression analysis, and repeat finding. Other relevant topics such as genomic databases and bioinformatics tools will also be integrated.
