This course aims to provide students with knowledge, critical understanding and practical experience of using computational methods and bioinformatic approaches to interpret output data and function genomics experiments and genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic technology platforms. And generally make you aware of resources available for bioinformatic analyses. The course uses a practical-based interactive learning approach. A small number of lectures are used to introduce the concepts of functional genomics technologies (proteomics, transcriptomics and bioinformatics) and this learning is reinforced in tutorials based around case studies. Students carry out a series of computer-based practicals in bioinformatic approaches using a range of data from parasites and vectors as examples.
