SLE702 - Bioinformatics, Proteomics and Genomics
|Year||2016 unit information|
not available from 2016 onwards
|Previously coded as:|
2 x 1 hour classes per week.
Sequence Information and Analysis: This unit provides an overview of bioinformatics, focusing on problem solving and experimental design. Genome Analysis: This unit provides an overview and analysis of the theory and practice of genome sequence analysis and the expression of the genome, Database Construction and Information Retrieval: This unit examines relational databases, Statistics in Genetics: This unit details modern statistical computing and graphics environments. Students will gain skills in, implementation, application and interpretation of statistical methods.
Electrophoresis: This unit covers basic theory and practical techniques of SDS-PAGE and 2-D PAGE electrophoresis, Protein Detection and Quantitation: This unit covers the theory and practice of chromatography and Mass Spectrometry (MS), Protein expression: This unit covers the theory and practical techniques of recombinant protein production and protein/peptide synthesis.
What is a gene?: This unit details the structure and organization of the genome in the context of protein and non-protein coding genes (such as micro RNAs) and how these genes are transcribed and regulated within the cell, Genome sequencing: This unit covers basic theory and practical methods for sequencing genomes (including high throughput, multi-parallel platforms) and the discovery and annotation of protein and non-protein coding genes. Gene expression: This unit provides an overview of the theoretical and practical aspects of transcriptomics, such as microarrays and quantitative PCR.
