Prerequisite BIOL 3020

In this course, we will use cutting edge genomic techniques to understand how studying whole genomes can shed light into the fundamental processes which allow natural populations to survive, and thrive in the context of complex ecological interactions. This is an advanced course and will provide a full two-week immersion program into the world of genomics.
Programming in R and Unix is preferable but not required, as there will be resources to learn these computer languages. As part of this course, we will engage in analyses of real and simulated genomic data. Each meeting will be divided in three portions. First a lecture, second a student-lead discussion on a selected paper, lastly a practicum on genomics data. https://www.jcbnunez.org/biol4585j
