This course introduces the basic computational methods used to understand the cell on a molecular level. It covers subjects such as the sequence alignment algorithms dynamic programming, hashing, suffix trees, and Gibbs sampling. Furthermore, it also focuses on computational approaches to genetic and physical mapping, genome sequencing, assembly, and annotation, RNA expression and secondary structure, protein structure and folding, and molecular interactions and dynamics.
This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.
Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
- Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
