BIO 587 Bioinformatics (Graduate)

This course provides a fundamental review of the cellular and biomolecular basis of inheritance using a genome-scale perspective for senior undergraduate and graduate students. In addition, 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 online course, students are expected to access all materials electronically.

As an online course, reading the textbook is vital to your success. Students are expected to keep up with the reading assignments and ask questions. Each week, at least one lecture video will be posted explaining complicated concepts, clarifying the book, working through bioinformatics programs and introducing new concepts. Please watch these videos each week, as quiz and exam questions will include their content. Additional lecture videos and supplemental materials may also be provided, such as outside videos, articles, web pages and figures, to help further explain concepts or provide additional important information. The textbook, lectures and other supplementary materials provided on Blackboard are all fair game for the quizzes and exams. Click Here for syllabus.
