BIOL 209 - The Genome Project


The Genome Project offers students a unique opportunity to directly apply the bioinformatics and comparative genomics skills acquired during Introduction to Bioinformatics (BINF 101) in the analysis of a novel genome. Each year, students will work collaboratively in small research teams to piece together the entire DNA blueprint of an organism with no existing reference genome. Students will evaluate and apply genome assembly, gene prediction, functional annotation, and variant discovery algorithms to better understand the genome structure, and functional biology of sequenced organisms. Analysis will be conducted within a LINUX environment through the Clark University Supercomputing Cluster.

Prerequisites: MBB 101  

Anticipated Terms Offered: Spring
