EB 2910 - Genomics in Engineering

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
The course focuses on the theory and practice of genomics and proteomics. In addition, the course provides an introduction to the principal aims, technologies and statistical issues arising in structural and functional genomics and proteomics. Design, engineering and manipulations of the natural and artificial genome and proteome are discussed. Students learn about the engineering applications of structural, functional, evolutionary and comparative genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epigenomics and metagenomics. (prereq: EB 2240 ) (coreq: EB 2410 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs with realistic constraints, such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability
  • Display a thorough foundation in the basic sciences and sufficient knowledge in the concepts and skills required to design, analyze and control physical, chemical and biological processes in the field of biomolecular engineering
