Upcoming Goldschmidt Short Course in Bioinformatics

May 2nd, 2012 by eric

Short course 2:
Bioinformatics for geologists

Dr. R. Eric Collins, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada

Date: Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Time: 12h30 – 14h00
Price: Free
Short course description:

This course is an introduction to bioinformatics – the use of computers to study biological processes via information-carrying molecules like DNA and proteins. We will look at how these tools can be useful in interpreting the geologic record, for example by the construction of molecular phylogenies, gene identification, metabolic pathway reconstruction and whole-genome sequencing. We will demonstrate web-based applications that perform these tasks and brainstorm possible future uses, as it becomes cheaper and easier to acquire and analyze massive amounts of sequencing data.
