Surfing the Genome - Bioinformatics in the Early 21st Century
Prof. Robert Cormia, Foothill College
Brief Description: 

Bioinformatics has been described as 'modeling and solving biological problems using a computer'. With the merging of biology and computer
technologies, bolstered by the sequencing of the human genome in 2000, life scientists need to master the wealth of Web based bioinformatic resources. This talk is an overview of the bioinformatic tools, methods, and databases used by life scientists in biotechnology and bioinformatics. We'll show you how you can 'Surf the Genome' through the Web.
