Teaching Computational Biology with MATLAB: A Focus on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

Robert Henson, MathWorks
Asawari Samant, MathWorks

In many computational biology programs, educators are challenged to expose students to a wide variety of topics in a very short time. Meeting this challenge often requires incorporating several different tools into the curriculum, which is difficult for faculty and daunting for students.

In this webinar, you will see how MATLAB computational biology products provide the tools necessary to cover this broad area in one platform. You will see examples on several topics, including:

  • Sequence analysis
  • Phylogenetic tree analysis
  • Microarray analysis
  • Biochemical pathway analysis
  • Protein structure analysis
  • Metagenomics

Product Focus

  • Bioinformatics Toolbox
  • SimBiology
