Introduction to Bioinformatics
This course covers the topics of big data bioinformatics and it’s uses in basic research, healthcare, and industry. A separate section is dedicated to big biomedical data. The topics are organized into 3 major segments:
- Introduction to Big Data Bioinformatics
- Bioinformatics in Healthcare
- Translational Bioinformatics
This course is designed to introduce undergraduate and graduate-level students in biology or related fields to bioinformatics, or the intersection of informatics and biology, and the opportunities that come with the available big data for research and industry. Students will receive an introduction to some of the many ways bioinformatics is applied in health care, agriculture, environmental sciences, public health, and more. The course begins with a survey and concludes with an 8-question evaluation at the end. The assessment is a multiple-choice survey that should only take a few minutes to complete.
