CMBI 6606 - Molecular Genetics/Genomics


Prerequisite: undergraduate genetics or molecular biology. This course introduces students to the field of genomics/proteomics and computational genomics. It covers the structure of the human genome, and the strategies that are used to map and sequence different genomes. It introduces techniques to analyze the information expressed by the whole genome. The course covers details about how genomic sequence information is utilized for pharmacogenomics, personalized medicine and medical research. The course also introduces post-genomics technologies such as computational genomics, comparative and functional genomics as well as epigenomics. Genomics research related ethical issues are extensively discussed. This course is designed to acquaint the students with key elements of critical thinking and problem solving methods and techniques by working on fundamental genomics/bioinformatics problems and case studies in a small team setting. 3 credits.
