Parts of the contents require basic knowledge in Biochemistry.

一、課程說明(Course Description)

In this course, we will introduce essential Servers, Database and Online
tools in Bioinformatics. We will also conduct hand-on exercises in
functional genomics and protein analyses.

用,並針對各種常用生物資料庫作概略性的介紹,包括 NCBI, Protein Data Bank (PDB)、
KEGG、ExPasy 等生物資料庫。 課程中將連線上網,實際操作、演練各種輔助軟體
(Browser, viewer, molecular displayer...)。
