This course will cover the process of gene inheritance and descriptions of genome structure, as well as a discussion of gene content and function across lineages. Students will learn about genome-related technologies, including genome sequencing. They will also learn about how genomes vary across species, as well as the forces driving these evolutionary changes. A significant part of the course will cover genome-level data analyses, and students will complete assignments and exams to demonstrate understanding of the information present in genomes and how we know it. Note: Prior to fall 2016, the course title was "Genomics." Prior to fall 2015, the course title was "Genomics and Proteomics."
