Proteomics and Functional Genomics

JTB 2010H

A required course of the Collaborative Program in Proteomics and Bioinformatics.

This is an “integrative” graduate level course focused on interactive lectures by invited “expert” lecturers with open classroom discussions regarding practical aspects of an interdisciplinary approach to proteomics, functional genomics and bioinformatics. It is offered within the academic component of the Collaborative Graduate Program in Genome Biology and Bioinformatics (CPGBB) and satisfies a part of the program’s requirements. The course is designed to expose graduate students with an interest in proteomics, functional genomics and computational biology – either well developed or just starting – to the “state-of-the-art” in terms of theoretical concepts and real life practical applications and to relate this research back to a student’s own Thesis project. Class discussions will center on the opportunities, challenges and judicious choices of advanced high-resolution experimental and computational methods of proteomics, functional genomics and bioinformatics as applied to genome-scale biology. Students will develop practical skills in writing and evaluating formal research proposals.
