Bioinformatics play significant roles in modern genetics and genomics studies. Nearly every large-scale biology projects require a significant component of bioinformatics and computational approaches. This course provides an introduction to advanced technologies and resources in genetics, epigenetics, transcriptomics, and phenotype studies, organized as “topics”. Students will be provided with knowledge and skills to apply canonical algorithms in bioinformatics tasks, to identify potential challenges, and to develop their own analysis pipelines.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will:
