BIOMEDIN 210 is a course that provides a general overview of informatics with a focus on medical informatics. It is traditionally taught by Mark Musen and guest lecturers. It is also referred to as CS 270.
"This course provides a comprehensive overview of the scientific foundations of informatics, particularly as applied to biology and medicine. Our emphasis is on the modeling of concepts and of processes and on the creation and adaptation of specific algorithms to assist in the automation of complex application tasks. Although information technology is seen as the enabling force to achieve desired end points, our emphasis is not on technology per se, but on the scientific methods required to build systems that process biomedical knowledge and data in useful ways."
