The primary goal of this course is to introduce and describe the latest advances in molecular biology, genomics, computational biotechnology, and their interrelationships to all biology and human society through classroom and computer exercises. We will review milestone discoveries, which led to the rise of genomics science, characteristics of the wide spectrum of different genomes (prokaryotic, eukaryotic and organellar), and innovative molecular techniques and tools (e.g. high throughput DNA sequencing, CRISPRs) used to study and manipulate genomes. We will study genomes including their architecture in different organisms and the gene products that underlie development and basic metabolism. Genomics will also be viewed in the context of “Big Data” sets, and its integration with computational methods. The impact of genomics on human health (personalized medicine, diagnostics and new treatments to cure genetic diseases), ecology, ethical issues and problems will be discussed in depth.
At the conclusion of this course the student will be able to:
Search Full Text Finder to find the full text of a publication.
If you see an embargo next to a e-journal title: An embargo period is a period of time which an official academic publication is not yet available online, either due to publishing restrictions or subscription contracts. Ex: "Embargo: 1 Year" = access begins one year ago from today's date.
