CHM 4213 - Informatics

3 Credit Hour(s)
This course is offered for undergraduate students from faculties of medicinal & biological chemistry, chemistry, biology, computer science and mathematics. Recent advances in fields such as bioinformatics, proteomics, genomics, and pharmacogenomics increased demand for people with combined experience in biology, chemistry and computer science. The informatics course, will present the latest tools available in the field and their usage for derivation of biological/chemical insight on structure-function relationships including analysis, virtual-engineering and modeling of mechanism, stability, specificity, as well as protein-protein and protein-drug interactions. The course will introduce the tools available for structural informatics including description of their algorithms and the affect of modifying user-available parameters. Derivation of biological/chemical insight will be discussed and emerging trends will be outlined.

Prerequisite: Junior standing in the Natural Science, Math or Computer Science majors.
Availability: Fall
