- Course objectives
- Students will learn basic knowledge about chemoinformatics and bioinformatics. Basic idea is to bridge the notion of information in chemoinformatics, where small molecules are the key objects, and understanding information in bioinformatics, where attention is focused on biopolymers, namely proteins and nucleic acids.
At the end of the course students should be able to:
Understand and draw 2-D and 3-D representation of molecules in computers;
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, the student will be able to describe basic chemoinformatics and bioinformatics methods and to show their applications on selected examples.
