Genetics and Genomics

  • GMS GE 701: Principles of Genetics and Genomics
    Graduate Prerequisites: consent of instructor
    This course will serve as a foundation for understanding the heritable basis of numerous biological traits, the relationships among genes, and the regulation of their expression. Focus on the ability to use genetic systems to probe these problems, and therefore will heavily explore the experimental aspects of these investigations. Includes discussion of the impact of the genome sequences' availability on the practice of modern science. Use of case study approach to investigate the rich variety of scientific insights gained through genetic studies of cell-cell communication, aging, addiction, obesity, and others. 4 cr, Fall sem.
  • GMS GE 703: Genetics and Genomics Colloquium I
    Graduate Prerequisites: consent of instructor
    The Genetics and Genomics Colloquium will be a highly participatory journal club where the students will be asked to give presentations on cutting edge research with the focus on communication skills rather than scientific content. This approach will allow students to become more comfortable with public speaking while developing the skills necessary for effective communication of scientific ideas. 2 cr, Fall sem.
  • GMS GE 704: Genetics and Genomics Colloquium II
    Graduate Prerequisites: consent of instructor
    The Genetics and Genomics Colloquium will be a highly participatory journal club where the students will be asked to give presentations on cutting edge research with the focus on communication skills rather than scientific content. This approach will allow students to become more comfortable with public speaking while developing the skills necessary for effective communication of scientific ideas. 2 cr, Spring sem.
  • GMS GE 901: Research in Genetics and Genomics
