BIOL 273 - Genomics and Bioinformatics

Semester Hours: 4

Large-scale, genome-wide studies produce vast amounts of biological data (e.g., DNA and protein sequences, 3-D structures, and changes in gene expression). The fields of genomics and bioinformatics apply computational tools and skills to how these data are stored, accessed, manipulated, and most importantly, used to answer biological questions related to, for example, evolution, population dynamics, and gene expression. In this course, students will learn, by completing an advanced genomics project, how genome-scale data are generated and analyzed using bioinformatics tools and databases. Students will also lead discussions of the applications of genomics and bioinformatics to medicine, evolution, and biomedical research.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
An undergraduate course in genetics or molecular biology and permission of instructor. Credit is given for this course or BIO 173 or CSC 121 or BIOL 213 . (Formerly, BIO 273)
