|Coordinator(s)||Julius Van Der Werf (email@example.com)|
This applied genetics unit introduces the concepts and methods needed to work with and analyse data from modern genomic platforms. The topics covered include microarray analysis, genome wide association studies, reconstruction of phylogenies, measures of population diversity, DNA sequencing, gene searches, alignments and biological databases. Besides the conceptual background, students will receive practical experience in working with the different technologies using real datasets and will learn to build/use bioinformatics solutions. This unit is recommended for biomedical, life sciences and other students interested in working with the latest genomic technologies.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
