Below we give a list of Bioinformatics or Bioinformatics-related courses curently taught across universities in Romania.
If you know of a similar course that is not included below, please contact us and we will update the list.
Applied Bioinformatics in Structural Biology, part of B.Sc. in Biology and Biochemistry, Universitatea „Alexandru Ioan Cuza”, Iași.
Taught by: Conf. Dr. Habil. Marius Mihășan, marius.mihasan [at] uaic [dot] ro
The course focuses on protein structures and nucleic acids, and also on learning software visualisation tools. Few chapters of this course are:
- Introduction to structural organisation of biological molecules. Methods to investigate protein and nucleic acids third dimension.
- Sequence-structure relationships. Local and global alignments. Structural clasification of proteins. SCOP database. Highly conserved domains. CATH database.
- .pdb files and protein databases.
- Visualisation and manipulation of biological macromolecules.
- Computational prediction of protein 3D structure.
- Molecular Docking
Bioinformatics, part of an M.Sc. programme at West University Timișoara.
Taught by: Prof. Dr. Adriana Vetuța Isvoran, adriana.isvoran [at] e-uvt [dot] ro
Applied Bioinformatics in Biomedical Research, part of M.Sc. in Molecular Genetics, Universitatea Alexandru Ioan Cuza, Iași.
Taught by: Dr. Călin Lucian Maniu, cmaniu [at] uaic [dot] ro
- Introduction to Perl for Bioinformatics.
- Basic programming and algorithms.

Bioinformatics Algorithms, part of a B.Sc. programme at Facultatea de Automatică și Calculatoare, Universitatea Politehnica București
Taught by: Prof. Dr. Ing. Cătălin Buiu, catalin [at] buiu [dot] net
The course gives an introduction to the history, motivation and important concepts in Bioinformatics Algorithms. It also gives an introduction to molecular biology and presents the important research questions dealt with in Biology and Chemistry. The final goal is to prepare the student to become a Bioinformatician.
