A BIO Introduction to Bioinformatics Laboratory 2 This laboratory course in Bioinformatics will focus primarily on three types of large datasets available in biology: macromolecular structures, genome sequences, and the results of functional genomics experiments such as gene expression data. Arguments for and counter-arguments against each hypothesis are presented to foster understanding of each topic.
The Human Body. This course provides students an opportunity to integrate and apply knowledge and skills gained from their major studies in addressing an important challenge or problem that they identify.
The course includes lectures and laboratory sessions. Topics include gametogenesis, fertilization, early and later development, cell division and morphogenesis.
Biology and H may not both be counted. Classes will be largely discussion based.
