Foundations of Translational Bioinformatics
The course goals are to gain familiarity of data produced with current biotechnologies, such as DNA arrays (e.g. SNP data), microarrays (transcriptional profiles), proteomics (mass spectrometry data), epigenomics (methylation profiles). Understand what can be done with such data to infer relations between genome, epigenome, and phenome, in order to discover molecular mechanisms of diseases, or identify biomarkers, or discover novel therapies for diseases.
