COSC 75 Introduction to Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is broadly defined as the study of molecular biological information, and this course introduces computational techniques for the analysis of biomolecular sequence, structure, and function. While the course is application-driven, it focuses on the underlying algorithms and information processing techniques, employing approaches from search, optimization, pattern recognition, and so forth. The course is hands-on: programming lab assignments provide the opportunity to implement and study key algorithms.


COSC 10; COSC 70/70.01 (formerly COSC 11), or MATH 22, or MATH 24. COSC 30 is recommended.

Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
