EB 3600 - -omics in Engineering

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
The course focuses on the theory and practice of -omics. 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, metagenomics, and interactomics.  (prereq: none) (coreq: EB 3410 )
