Abstract/Description:
Two-Day Short Course at MathFest 2003: Reading the Book of Life: How Bioinformatics Makes Sense of Molecular Messages John R. Jungck, Beloit College Part 1: Tuesday, July 29, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Part 2: Wednesday, July 30, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Bioinformatics is an emerging area that combines extensive mathematical and computer applications in molecular biology. This course will introduce how genetic sequences can be analyzed with coding and information theory, computational linguistics, dynamic programming of multiple sequence comparison, and phylogenetic trees. Other topics include: molecular surface calculations as well as X-ray crystallographic approaches to structure determination, knot theory for studying the topological changes involved in replication, recombination, and repair of DNA, RNA folding, and analysis of DNA chips to study expression of genes. The level of mathematics will be at the undergraduate level and often is accessible to biology students. Genetic Codes as Codes: Towards a Theoretical Basis for Bioinformatics John R. Jungck, Beloit College DNA Motif Lexicon and Moving Research to the Classroom: Linking Courses in Biology and Computer Science Mark D. Leblanc, Wheaton College Topological Toys, Tinkering Thinking: Knot Theory and DNA John R.
