In this course we consider "structural bioinformatics" to be the development and application of computational methods (i) to analyse and predict the conformations of biological macromolecules and (ii) to study relationships between macromolecular structure and function. Protein molecules will be in focus, but other biological molecules will also be studied.

However, I will be in computer lab MVF25 in the Mathematical Sciences Building betwen 15:15 and 17:00 (with another Bioinformatics class). If you would like to do some work on the TDA506 practicals at that time, you are welcome to join me in room MVF25 this afternoon, and I should have time to take any questions you might have regarding those practical exercises. The next TDA506 lectures will be on Thursday at 10:00 and Friday at 15:15, as shown in TimeEdit.|
