BIOL 4930: Distinguished Major Thesis Research
Credits: 2
This course is the final semester of Independent Research for participants of the Biology Distinguished Majors Program. During this semester, students will complete their laboratory investigations, ultimately presenting the sum of their work in a written thesis. Prerequisite: Instructor Permission
BIOC 8145: Bioinformatics and Functional Analysis of Genomes
Credits: 2
The class covers statistical and programming background as well as introduction to software tools for analysis of functional genomics data sets and will focus on analysis of high throughput sequence data including RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq. Students will also learn how to further summarize their data from a regulatory network perspective by performing TF-DNA motif, metabolic/signaling pathway and gene ontology (GO) analysis. Prerequisite: Bioinformatics and Protein Structure or permission of instructor
BIOC 8150: Biochemical Literature
Credits: 1
A continuing seminar based on papers in the current literature. Participation is required.
BIMS 8993: Non-topical Research: Visiting Research Graduate Traineeship Program
Credits: 1–12
This course is for visiting research students participating in the BIMS Visiting Research Graduate Trianeeship Program (VRGTP). Students in this course are dual enrolled in their home institution and will participate in research for a minimum of 4 semesters. The research will assist them in completing their degree at their home institution. Non-degree students.
