BIO 581 Genome Science

This course provides a fundamental review of the cellular and biomolecular basis of inheritance using a genome-scale perspective for graduate students.  It provides a description of emerging genomics technologies and techniques, basic bioinformatics methods, and tool applications within the domains of medicine and biology.  Since this is an asynchronous online course, students are expected to access all materials electronically.

Prerequisite: Undergraduate or graduate level courses in Multivariate Calculus and Discrete Math or equivalent. The key skills needed from multivariate calculus are the ability to do partial derivatives and iterated integrals.
