Course objectives
Students will learn basic knowledge about chemoinformatics. Basic idea of the subject is to describe key chemoinformatics approaches for analysis and processing of data about small molecules.

At the end of the course students should be able to:
Understand and draw 1D, 2D and 3D representation of small organic molecules in computers;
Understand methods for prediction of activity and properties of molecules and for characterization of molecule similarity.
Work with methods and the information how to get from genome information to biological function prediction;
Understand the relationship structure-activity-biological function
Learning outcomes
After finishing of the course, a student will be able to describe basic chemoinformatics approaches for analysis and processing of information about small organic molecules. The student will be also able to show application of these approaches on selected examples.
Syllabus
