CMBIwiki:About

From CMBIwiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The CMBI-Wiki is meant as a low level dictionary for terms used in one of the scientific fields related to bioinformatics that are likely to be unfamiliar to scientists in another field. For example, we will explain thermodynamics, protein structure determination, etc., to biologists and medics, and point mutations, viral capsids, and genetic disorders to chemists and physicists. Our explanations will seldomly be very complete and often formally not entirely correct; but they can help you read each others articles and web-sites.

This Wiki is additionally meant as educational support for bachelor and master students who follow the CMBI bioinformatics courses.
