Description An introduction to the science and practice of omics disciplines including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. Students will learn the theory, development, and practice of omics technologies as a key component of systems biology. Students will explore how omics data can be integrated and applied to gain insight into a wide variety of biochemical and biotechnological research problems, such as personalized medicine and agricultural sustainability. Advanced techniques practiced in lab may include long and short read DNA sequencing, RNAseq, 2D electrophoresis, liquid chromatography, quantitative and tandem mass spectrometry, and bioinformatics. This is a lab/lecture course where students will study background and theory and practice some of these techniques in the lab.
