1 Introduction to Bioinformatics IMBB 2017 RAB, Kigali - Rwanda May 02 13, 2017 Joyce Nzioki

2 Plan for the Week Introduction to Bioinformatics Raw sanger sequence data Introduction to CLC Bio Quality Control De novo assembly Resolving conflicts BLAST and Biological databases DNA Barcoding Nucleotide sequence Analysis MSA and Phylogenetics Sequence depositing

3 What is Bioinformatics Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary science that develops and improves on methods of storing, retrieving, organizing and analyzing biological data. This computational techniques are to solve biological problemsand discoverthewealth of biological information hidden in biological data.

4 Bioinformatics The design, construction and use of software tools to generate, store, annotate and analyse data and information relating to Molecular Biology.

5 Bioinformatics The design, construction and use of software tools to generate, store, annotate and analyse data and information relating to Molecular Biology. Here we consider the use of bioinformatics tools rather than their design and construction. Here we consider the access, storage and analysis of data and information items rather than the generation and annotation.

6 Bioinformatics Experiment Analysis Hypothesis DATA Sequence Structure RESULT Function Evolution Pathway Interaction Mutation expression

7 Major types of Bioinformatics Data Literature and ontologies Genomes Gene expression Protein sequence DNA & RNA sequence Protein structure DNA & RNA structure Protein families, motifs and domains Chemical entities Protein interactions Pathways Systems

8 Bioinformatics Research areas Include but not limited to Organization, classification, dissemination and analysis of biological andbiomedical data Biological sequence analysis and phylogenetics. Genome organization andevolution Regulation of gene expression andepiginetics Biological pathways and network in healthy and disease states Protein structure prediction fromsequence Modelling and prediction of the biophysical properties of biomolecules for binding prediction and drug design Design of biomolecularstructure andfunction With applications to Biology, Medicine, Agriculture and Industry

9 Where did bioinformatics come from? Bioinformatics arose as molecular biology begun to be transformed by the emergence of molecular sequence and structural data Recap: The key dogmas of molecular biology DNA sequence determined protein sequence Protein sequence determines protein structure Protein structure determines protein function Regulatory mechanisms (e.g. gene expression) determines the amount of a particular function in space and time Bioinformatics is now essential for the archiving, organization and analysis of data related to these processes

10 Bioinformatics involves the application of computer algorithms, computer models and computer databases with the broad goal of understanding the action of genes, transcripts, proteins and large collections in this entities The integration of information learned about this three biological processes gives insight Into the biology of organisms

11 How does it look like on a computer

13 How do we actually do Bioinformatics? Prepackage tools and databases vmany online and open source vsome are commercial Tool development vmostly on UNIX environment vknowledge of programming requires(python, Perl, R, C, Java) vmay require specialized or high performance computing resources

14 History of Bioinformatics

15 History of Bioinformatics

16 Sequencing DNA sequencing is a process of determining the order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule.

17 History of DNA sequencing 1976: Maxam Gilbert sequencing 1977: Sanger sequencing (dideoxy chain termination) 1986: Flourescently labelled ddntps 1987: Applied Biosystems (ABI 370) 1988: Capillary gell electrophoresis 1999: Applied Biosystems ABI 3700 DNA Analyzer 2005 > : Next generation sequencing

22 Limitations of Bioinformatics Bioinformatics is a science of inference hence: Quality of bioinformatics predictions depends on the quality of data and sophistication of algorithms. Sequence data may have errors which subsequently leads to errors in downstream analysis. Many exhaustive algorithms cannot be used due to computational limitations. Trade-off between specificity and sensitivity

23 Why bioinformatics then In most cases biologics /wet lab is needed to validate bioinformatic predictions Bioinformatics can: Reduce data to a small set of testable predictions Assign a degree of confidence to each prediction The biologist will often have to choose the appropriate degree of confidence, depending on: Cost of validating predictions. Benefit expected from the right predictions. Data mining - the process by which testable hypothesis are generated regarding the function or structure of a gene or protein of interest by identifying homologs in better characterized organisms. Bioinformatics as in sillico biology: Allows for exploration of domains that cannot be addressed manually e.g study of past evolutionary events / patterns.
