This course will survey recent advances in genomics including: transmission of genetic information, the structure of the genome and its components (genes, regulatory elements, microRNAs, etc), the evolution of genomes, the relationship between genomes and phenotypes including molecular population genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics. The lab will focus on the use of state-of-the-art sequencing data to understand genomes and their architecture. The course will be laboratory-intensive with many lecture periods being used as laboratory periods. Pre-requisite: BIOL271, or permission of instructor.
