Undergraduate Courses/Fall

MOL 455 Introduction to Genomics and Computational Molecular Biology


Topics include computational approaches to sequence similarity and alignment, phylogenetic inference, gene expression analysis, structure prediction, comparative genome analysis, and high-throughput technologies for mapping genetic networks. In addition to regular homework exercises, students will be asked to design and carry out projects in groups of 3-4 students. MOL 455/COS 455 meets with the graduate course COS/MOL 551. Undergraduate students will attend regular precepts in which relevant primary literature is critically discussed. In addition to presenting their projects in an oral presentation, students will describe their findings in a final paper formatted as a journal article. Undergraduates grades will be determined independently, and they will be based on homework assignments (60%), and the final project paper/presentation (40%).
