Tutorial Details: Bioinformatics Programming

Date: Thursday, April 14, 2005, 09:00 am - 10:30 am
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI

With the development of genomics and proteomics, biologists will need to handle more and more data in their research. Bioinformatics programming, especially PERL programming, is a well-suited tool for biological data manipulation and analysis.

This tutorial will introduce the fundamental concepts and mechanisms of computer programs using PERL language as an example. We will use practical examples such as: extraction of text files, manipulation of sequence data, parsing BLAST results, and so forth, to demonstrate how bioinformatics programming can make your work more efficient.
