Description Experimental and analytical foundations of functional genomics, tailored to experimental biologists who are using high-throughput sequencing technologies to analyze function in animal genomes. Lectures cover experimental methods and tools available for bioinformatics analysis; students will gain experience in the use of online or command-line bioinformatics tools through weekly assignments. Advanced knowledge in eukaryotic molecular genetics is needed but bioinformatics skills are not required. 3 graduate hours. No professional credit. Students must have access to a networked computer on which they can load software in order to complete required assignments for the course. Prerequisite: MCB 502 or equivalent or consent of instructor.
