Bioinformatics and Genomics

Bioinformatics and Genomics
Bioinformatics and genomics are quickly evolving fields that analyze and contextualize genome sequencing data. Genomics is the study, with an emphasis on high-throughput techniques, of the nucleic acid content of organisms. Bioinformatics is the interdisciplinary field that uses the techniques of statistics, computer science, and system organization to interpret this genomic data. In this course students will use national repositories of genomic information, databases, and open-source bioinformatics tools to visualize and manipulate genomic data. We will also explore genomics’ larger social context, particularly as it relates to medical informatics. (CHEM 0104 or CHEM 0107 and BIOL 0145 or by waiver) 3 hrs. lect.
