Short description:

The lecture and the accompanying computer lab are intended for students of the second year of the macro-course "Bioinformatics and Systems Biology" and for the third year of "Molecular Design and Bioinformatics". They provide the basis for the application of computer science and computational science to the analysis of genes, genomes and proteins.

Full description:

The lecture and the accompanying laboratory provide the basis for the application of computer science and computational science to the analysis of genes, genomes and proteins. The framework program is as follows:

1. Databases for molecular biology and biotechnology, overview, interdependencies, relational databases.

2. Basic operations on one nucleotide sequence.

3. Comparing two sequences.

4. Searching databases of nucleotide and amino acid sequences using sequences as queries.

5. Comparing multiple sequences.

6. Molecular evolution.

7. Analysis of protein families, representations.

8. Profiles, HMM etc… Advanced methods of finding sequence similarity

9. Sequence themes related to function. Protein family motifs, cell compartment segregation signals, gene expression control sequences.

10. Methods of sequencing and assembling genomes.

11. Differentiation of coding and non-coding DNA sequences (ab initio and homology-based methods).

12. Genome annotation.

13. Comparative (whole genomes) and functional genomics.
