Computational Biology B

Master's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: FIM790

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to computational biology on the molecular and cell-biologal level. The students are introduced to key concepts in molecular and cell biology. Methods for storage, search, prediction and analysis of information from molecular-biological experiments are studied. Models of molecular evolution (the so-called coalescent) are described and applied to problems in human evolution, and to the analysis of molecular bacterial data. Physical models of the structure and function of biological macromolecules (for example protein folding and RNA structure) are introduced. Computational Biology on the macroscopic level is the subject of the companion course Computational Biology A (FIM 740).
