Study new technologies! Bioinformatics combines computer science and molecular biology, and the areas of biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and probability and statistics.
- The University of Saskatchewan was one of the first universities in Canada to offer an undergraduate degree in Bioinformatics.
- The program is a true inter-disciplinary one, with direct involvement of the departments of Computer Science, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics and Statistics.
- Students in the program have the opportunity to enrol in an internship during their studies, or to continue into graduate studies - all at the University of Saskatchewan!
- CMPT 270: Developing Object-Oriented Systems
Object-oriented programming. The use of modeling, abstractions, patterns, and GUIs to design and build a good OO system. Unit testing to ensure that it works. Application of the techniques to interactive systems.
- BINF 200: Introduction to Bioinformatics
An introduction to resources and basic techniques for the analysis of protein and DNA data. Students will become familiar with online DNA and protein structure databases, and with the computational methods avaliable for analyzing data in them and with the application of databases and search tools to biological problems.
- BIOC 311: Introductory Molecular Biology
Basic principles and techniques of nucleic acid manipulations used in molecular biology and biotechnology are presented. Information and practical experience with plasmids, restriction endonucleases, PCR, DNA sequencing, site-directed mutagenesis, cloning, hybridization, analysis of RNA and gene promoters, and protein over-expression are presented. The laboratory component will also include an Internet exercise.
