The course is divided into two parts and is part of the Masters in Medical Informatics.

Bioinformatics I is an introductory course on the management of computer analysis methods, mathematical and statistical biological data from genomics and transcriptomics. The Bioinformatics I course objectives are: (1) review a theoretical and practical bioinformatics methods classical genomic sequence analysis, (2) training in quality control, processing, and statistical analysis transcriptomic data, and (3) review concepts experimental design and hypothesis testing with data “omics”.

Bioinformatics II is an advanced course in bioinformatics applications in the field of biomedicine. Particularly, use of data “omic” to help the diagnosis and treatment of patients. The Bioinformatics II course objectives are: (1) introducing genomic medicine / personal, (2) to train students in the classification of patients based on genomic data, (3) rntregar data mining concepts for identifying predictive patterns of disease or response to treatment, (4) review the generation and interpretation of gene networks types, (5) demonstrate the causal inference from data “omics” in observational studies.

Credits for the course are awarded by the Faculty of Medicine, University of Chile. The subjects may be recognized for future studies graduate, Diploma and Masters in Health Informatics.
