Here's an introduction to bioinformatics and biomolecular engineering at UCSC (ppt).

I have a directory of TeX files with a README file indexing the whole thing, and a documentation directory that contains the answers to many frequently asked questions (such as my discussion of mouse avoidance and a list of things to check before giving me writing to read), so please take a look!
