Genomics and Bioinformatics
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
Goals: This course was developed to familiarize students majoring in biology with the methods of genomic research, to encourage students to think on genomic scale, to help students become proficient with computer tools to "do" genomics, to promote student understanding the relationships between science and newspaper headlines. Content: This course examines major ideas of the current genomics research. It also introduces students to biology resources available online. Through the series of exercises and case studies, students will practice conducting DNA and protein sequence analysis, primary literature analysis, interpreting results of gene expression studies and more. We will talk about ethical and scientific aspects of genomic research including human genome project and DNA testing. Taught: Winter Prerequisites: BIOL 3050 Credits: 4
