BIOL 39907 - Computational Genomics

Course Credit: 1
Computational Genomics The Human Genome Project and related efforts with model organisms have produced massive data sets of genomic information. This big data can serve as the basis for exploring novel biological questions. This course will provide an introduction to the underlying statistical and computational concepts essential to the field of computational genomics, a subdiscipline of bioinformatics. In addition, students will gain experience using freely available tools to analyze genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, and molecular phylogenies. 1.0 credits. Pre-requisites: BIOL-30600. This course counts toward the Biology major and the computational requirement of the BCMB major. Prerequisite(s): BIOL-30600
