C371 OBJECTIVES

Updated: 11 August 2004

Chemical Informatics I presents basic concepts of information representation, storage, and retrieval as they pertain to chemistry. The course is designed to give you an overview of the techniques that make modern chemical informatics systems work. Thus, we will look at some of the coding techniques that form the basis for chemical information retrieval by structures, nomenclature, molecular formulas. We will also examine various methods of coding for visualization of chemical structures and chemical data. In addition, some of the major algorithms and techniques used in the modern pharmaceutical industry to enhance their research efforts are presented in C371.

In the C371 course, you should:
