CMB 452 - Computational Biology


Computational methods have expanded in scope and play a crucial role in developing quantitative models of biological systems at all levels of complexity. This course covers three groups of topics in computational structural biology: protein structure prediction, molecular simulations and structure-based drug design, focusing on sequence-structure-function relationships in biomolecules. Offered winter semester.  Prerequisites: BIO 120, CHM 115, CHM 116, (CMB 250 or CHM 461), (MTH 122, MTH 123, MTH 125) or (MTH 201, MTH 202), (PHY220, PHY 221) or (PHY 230, PHY 231) or permission of instructor.
