Genomics and Biotechnology
This course provides an overview of genomics and covers topics such as mapping genomes, acquiring genomes and annotating genomes. Students will critically assess the genome projects from various organisms. Special emphasis will be given to technologies that contribute to and stem from the advances in genome sciences, including principles of sequencing, computational tools for gene annotation, functional genomic tolls for systems genetics, and technologies for massively parallel analyses of gene function. The applications of these techniques to various areas of biology will also be presented.
