BIOL 416 - Functional Genomics

The first half of the course serves as an introduction to basic bioinformatics and genomics. The second half of the course concentrates on the rapidly evolving discipline of Functional Genomics, which takes advantage of the dramatic increase in the amount of known genome sequences to address biological questions at a genome-wide level. Areas of Functional Genomics that will be covered during the lectures and computer labs of this course include RNA profiling, proteomics, and systems biology. Recent articles from the scientific literature will be used to illustrate these topics. This course includes lectures, computer labs, and literature discussions.
