Introduction to Genomics and Computational Molecular Biology

Anastasia Baryshnikova
Michael S. Levine
Mona Singh

The course will provide a detailed overview of experimental and computational approaches used to study molecular systems. We will focus on modern technologies used to generate and analyze "omics" data, such as genome sequences, gene expression, transcriptional and post-transcriptional modification, proteomics and mass spectrometry, molecular interaction networks and chemical genomics. We will also discuss and apply fundamental statistical concepts relevant to genomics (data evaluation,estimation of true and false positives, significance testing, multiple testing correction) and learn basic programming tools.


Reading/Writing assignments:
In addition to regular homework exercises, students will be asked to design and carry out projects in groups of 3-4 students. Students will present their projects in an oral presentation and will describe their findings in a final paper formatted as a journal article.

Requirements/Grading:
Other Exam - 40%
