ENG BE 777
A case-study approach to current topics in computational genomics. Mathematical and engineering tools for analyzing genomic data are reviewed. The relationships between sequence, structure, and function in complex biological networks are studied using quantitative modeling. Whole genome analysis is performed. Completion of a series of projects emphasizing real-life data, integrated approaches, practical applications, hands-on analysis, and collaboration. Course projects aim at improving current approaches and involve C and/or PERL programming to interface with existing software packages. The course will be offered in a computer laboratory equipped with one laptop per student.
