BIOL 119. Genomics and Systems Biology
Fundamental questions in biology are being answered using revolutionary new technologies including genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, systems biology, modeling, and large scale protein and genetic interaction screens. These approaches have fundamentally changed how scientists investigate biological problems and allow us to ask questions about cells, organisms and evolution that were impossible to address even five years ago. Readings will include animal, plant, fungal, and bacterial literature. Weekly laboratory projects will incorporate genomic and molecular approaches.
