Unformatted text preview: An Introduction to Bioinformatics for Biological Sciences Students Department of Microbiology and Immunology, McGill University Version 3.0 2 A N I NTRODUCTION TO B IOINFORMATICS FOR B IOLOGICAL S CIENCES S TUDENTS Contributors The first edition of the Introduction to Bioinformatics for biological sciences students was written during the summer of 2004 at McGill University for the Bioinformatics Project (BIP) as part of the U2 undergraduate laboratory in Microbiology and Immunology (MIMM-386). What you are holding in your hands is the edited second edition of the manual put together by a new group of students during the summer of 2005. From the first edition, it contains only the section on biological databases and the main institutes that develop and maintain them (other parts were included in an extended version of the manual instead). The biggest change from the first edition is that the manual now includes the exercise sheets and tutorial written during the course of the BIPs first year of existence, making this volume the comprehensive resource students need to understand the material covered in the BIP, but also to perform the exercises.
