10.555J Bioinformatics: Principles, Methods and Applications

Class Info

Introduction to bioinformatics, the collection of principles and computational methods used to upgrade the information content of biological data generated by genome sequencing, proteomics, and cell-wide physiological measurements of gene expression and metabolic fluxes. Fundamentals from systems theory presented to define modeling philosophies and simulation methodologies for the integration of genomic and physiological data in the analysis of complex biological processes. Various computational methods address a broad spectrum of problems in functional genomics and cell physiology. Application of bioinformatics to metabolic engineering, drug design, and biotechnology also discussed.

This class has no prerequisites.

10.555J will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by I. Rigoutsos and Gr. Stephanopoulos.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
