Genome Biology


Thanks largely to the Human Genome Project, the ability to collect vast amounts of genome-scale sequence and functional data (genomics) and to analyze them computationally (bioinformatics) allows new approaches to unanswered questions and the posing of new questions about the biology of genomes. Familiarity with these fields is crucial for the next generation of scientists and thinkers in areas such as public policy, medicine, health, and the environment. Introduces students to fundamental concepts and current topics in genome science through lectures and current research articles.
