Sequence alignment and BLAST



The aim of this course is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of sequence alignment techniques, focusing on both BLAST and multiple sequence alignment, to equip them with the skills necessary to analyze biological sequences, uncover evolutionary relationships, identify functional elements, and explore the vast applications in fields such as genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics.

This course is for you if:

  • You are a complete/near complete beginner to bioinformatics
  • You are a student, researcher, and professional seeking to enhance your skills in analyzing biological sequences, uncovering evolutionary relationships, and exploring the diverse applications of sequence alignment in areas such as genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics.
  • You want to be able to perform basic tasks in R, such as making plots and sorting through tables, based on health-data without getting too deep into the theory of coding

Basic knowledge of molecular biology concepts and familiarity with sequence data analysis would be beneficial for participants.
