The course Sequence comparison and blast is designed to get you beyond the simple ’copy, paste & go’ approach that is usually employed by life science researchers, when they want to find sequences with similarity to their own sequence of interest or when they want to investigate other specific sequence properties and elements.
This course will deal with the theory and practice of blast in all its varieties and with a selected set of other sequence comparison tools. After attending this course you will be able to intelligently choose a blast program and search strategy that is most likely to answer your questions, or maybe another program entirely that is more suited to the specific questions at hand. This course overlaps the course “Crash course blast” but is broader in its overview of sequence analysis tools besides Blast.
