Obiettivi formativi

Aim of the course is to provide students with the basic knowledge of bioinformatics techniques as an easy and friendly support for their study and research careers. This will entail: 1) theory of the most common bioinformatics algorithms and resources: who they are, what they do and why they are so important and increasingly used in modern biology research; 2) basic practical experience through hands-on-sessions on typical problems that can be answered by using popular online tools.
