Molecular Bioinformatics - A Hands-on Course Online

Bioinformatics is a science that integrates concepts of biology, mathematics, statistics and computer science and is dedicated to the study of biological issues through the analysis of molecular data. Bioinformatics is essential for storing biological data, which grows exponentially, to disseminate information on Web-based platforms, and to analyze and interpret experimental data. Thus, Bioinformatics is an area of knowledge that is constantly developing and updating. This course is relevant not only for the training of undergraduate and graduate students but also for the complementary training of health professionals and technicians.

This course combines teaching, for each topic, of the theoretical concepts and bioinformatics tools available, the practical demonstration of these tools and their application by the students in a desktop computer to solve the proposed scientific questions.
