Bachelor degree in Biology / Molecular Biology, I year
This course is a very short introduction to molecular biology and bioinformatics. The very first lessons presents the fundaments of molecular biology (gene, transcription, translation...) and then some simple on-line tools for biologists.
The practicals represent the most important part of the course:
- PubMed: how to retrieve articles
- Biological sequences databanks: NCBI Entrez and EBI SRS
- Genes and proteins. Genomic browsers
- Sequence alignments: Dot Plot,BLAST and BLAT
