Human Genome Analysis

Practical Analysis of a Personal Genome
In this hands-on laboratory-style course, we will analyze a human genome starting from the raw sequencing data (publicly available). Using databases, scientific literature and other resources, students will formulate hypotheses about that person’s ancestry, physical traits, and disease susceptibility based on the genomic data. At the conclusion of the course, students will be able to describe the science underlying human genome analysis, employ and interpret the results of bioinformatics software tools, and debate the ethical, legal and social implications of personal genomics. No biology background is assumed, but students are expected to be able to use command-line software tools. (CSCI 101 or CSCI 150)
