Bioinformatics

Description

We deal with the most commonly used algorithms in biological applications. The first part of the course is dedicated to data mining algorithms and other classification methods such as random forest and other learning methods. We explore how to use such algorithms to build 3D structures of proteins (e.g., using homology modeling) and analyse a large amount of data (e.g., genome analysis). The second part is focused on molecular docking algorithms and high throughput screening protocols used in virtual screening calculations.
