BIOLOGICAL PATTERN SEARCHING WITH R
An online course on searching for patterns in DNA and proteins using the R programming language.
This course is designed for biologists who want to gain computational programming experience in a realistic setting.
The R programming language will be used as the computational tool because of its ease of use for relative beginners to programming, and because it is used widely in computational biology and statistics.
The course will deal with simple and more complex pattern searching in real biological data sets, using regular expressions with DNA and protein data sets.
While the course is aimed at biologists, it is also suitable for people with basic knowledge of the structure of DNA.
On completion of the course you will be empowered to carry out pattern searching in DNA and protein data sets.
