Courses taken at University of Nebraska- Lincoln:

 

1. CSCE 311: Data Structures and Algorithms (Python; 3 credits)

Syllabus:

This is an introductory course to algorithms and data structures for students with diverse background interested in informatics. Foundational coverage of algorithms includes both problems (such as indexing, searching, sorting, and pattern matching) and methods (such as divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, greedy, network flow and graph theory). Foundational coverage of data structures includes lists, tables, trees, graphs, and multidimensional arrays. Advanced topics will be studied in the context of informatics applications. Specifically, students will learn the fundamental ideas for how to efficiently analyze biological DNA sequence and images, and how to solve challenging problems in general informatics.

 

2. BIOS 428/828 Perl Programming for Biological Applications (3 credits)

Syllabus:

This course teaches the student the basic skills of computer programming, using the Perl programming language. The Perl language is widely used in the biological sciences, and as such this course will use those domains to exemplify concepts learned during this course. Although Perl is especially prevalent in computational biology, bioinformatics, and genomics the course will demonstrate how Perl can be applied to a wider range of biological sciences (from the instructor’s own experience), including but not limited to agronomy, ecology, ethology, and microbiology. It is understood that real expertise in programming comes with a lot of practice: this course will not make the student a highly skilled programmer but will lay a strong foundation in the general concepts and will demonstrate that it is relatively easy to use Perl for the student’s (future) biological research topics where data processing and analysis is required.
