This Applied Bioinformatics offered at University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg programme, offered by the School of Molecular and Cell Biology, helps you to understand how bioinformatics is used in the scientific field. This includes how to select, describe, and use basic bioinformatics tools and how to interpret computational results. You will learn the history and application of bioinformatics, as well as algorithm, pipeline and software development and analysis, and the transfer and storage/database development of genomics data. You will also explore gene expression data analysis, protein structure, functional genomics, and genome analysis.
Bioinformatics is important to genetic research because the largescale, complex data that is generated in genomics simply wouldn’t make sense without contextual knowledge of how life forms work.
