Computational Molecular Biology

Prof. Silvio Bicciato, Dr. Mattia Forcato (Dep. of Life Sciences, Unimore)


Schedule: May-September 2021


This course introduces the basic computer science principles, technologies, methods and instruments used for the computational analysis, extraction of the information content and functional interpretation of biological data produced by genome sequencing, gene expression measurements and epigenomics. The aim of the course is to highlight how the application to genomic data of the computational themes of databases, information theory, data mining, and bioinformatics can contribute to explore the molecular mechanisms at the base of physiological and pathological states of biological systems. Students will develop bioinformatics and computational skills to retrieve, manage and process bio-medical-molecular data, as well as they will acquire knowledge of the instruments needed to tackle various issues in computational biology.
