Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in computer science intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.

Section Description

This section will be online synchronous. There will be asynchronous recorded lectures and additional face-to-face meetings. This course introduces a selection of topics in bioinformatics (mostly genomics) with a focus on probabilistic methods and statistical analysis, as well as basic principles of data science and computational sciences. Who this is for: The course will help graduate students aspiring to become bioinformatics researchers as well as students who are interested in data sciences in general and are looking for interesting applications. The course is less ideal for students interested in a casual exposure to the buzz surrounding bioinformatics. A research project (conceptualization and implementation) is a major component of the course grade, making the course unsuitable for students with little or no programming experience. Syllabus will tentatively include: Basic Molecular Biology, Probability/Statistics (probabilistic modeling, hypothesis testing, sampling), Introdu
