Short Course Programme Microbial Bioinformatics - At the institution - Nottingham - Nottinghamshire

  • Objectives
    The aims of this course are to investigate how procaryotic and eucaryotic genomes are sequenced, constructed and annotated; how the genomes from different classes of organisms are compared and to demonstrate the potential commercial exploitation of such genomic analysis.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements Candidates will normally be expected to possess one of the following qualifications before entry: * An Honours degree (at least a 2.2, or its equivalent) in a relevant biological subject from a UK (or equivalent) university * A professional qualification of equivalent status * Any other such qualification and experience deemed equivalent in subject content and level of attainment by the admissions panel. In addition a good command of English is essential to enable successful completion of the programmes. * The minimum requirement is the British Council IELTS grade 6.5 or its equivalent.

  • Course description
    Course information
    The School of Science and Technology at Nottingham Trent University is offering a series of short courses within the molecular biosciences, developed specifically for individuals within the Health Service, Pharmaceutical Industry, Biotechnology companies and related SMEs. These three day courses may also be used as a contribution towards a Masters degree.

    What do you study?

        * Aspects of the genomics of bacteria, viruses, yeast and fungi
        * Sequencing genomes: contig construction, genome completion, genome annotation
        * Comparative microbial genomics: microbial circular and linear genomes, mega-plasmids, reduced genomes, using a range of case studies
        * Diversity and phylogenetic relationships: 16S rDNA sequencing and other conserved sequences; cluster analysis; phylogenetic tree construction
        * Community DNA analysis, metagenomics, identification of uncultured organisms
        * Location of core genes for metabolism, and virulence
        * Analysis of metabolic pathways, structure and function using KEGG.

    Assessment
    Assessment will comprise an investigation of sequence data using bioinformatics databases, and critique of the findings (100%).

    Why study at Nottingham Trent University?
