Courses in the GSBS Bioinformatics Concentration Fundamentals of Bioinformatics - GINF5001 Introduction to the field and its tools for sequence analysis, molecular modeling, integrated informatics environments, and the UNIX environment. 3 Credit Hours. Prerequisites: None. 3 Credit Hours. Prerequisites/Co-requisite: GSBS Core. Structural Bioinformatics I - GINF5003 Introduction to protein structure and modeling. Manipulation, viewing, and analysis of biopolymers. Alternative approaches to drug design and analysis of molecular interactions important for development of novel small molecule therapeutics from lead compounds (isolation of the pharmacophore). 3 Credit Hours. Prerequisites: Fundamentals of Bioinformatics Biological Database Systems and Computational Genomics - GINF5020 Public and proprietary sequence databases, the applications that address them, their management and integration. Sequence analysis and manipulation; array analyses, proteomics and genomics. 3 Credit Hours. Prerequisites: Fundamentals of Bioinformatics Structural Bioinformatics II - GINF5002 Homology modeling, advanced alignment and structural searching, docking, and molecular dynamics applied to drug design and the study of biophysical problems (e.g. impact of protein folding on disease states) ranging from small proteins to the study of larger complexes. (e.g. ribosomes). 3 Credit Hours. Prerequisite: Structural Bioinformatics I, GINF 5003 or Permission of Instructor. Bioinformatics Platforms and Application Development - GINF5004 Operating systems, computers and networks. Programming (perl) and bioinformatics development within a LINUX environment.
