Course Description

Research seminar of the UCSC Computational Genomic Laboratory and Platform Teams ( Students will receive hands-on instruction in modern computational methods to address research questions. Topics include genomic and transcriptomic sequence analysis methods, comparative and evolutionary genomics, big-data genomic analysis, biomedical data sharing, and precision medicine. Students will attend and participate in monthly lab meetings, where they will present their work to the lab, as well as monthly all-hands meetings, where students give a quick report on their progress and the next month's goals. Students will also attend and participate in the bi-weekly journal club, where pairs of students present and discuss a paper of their choosing with the lab. Students will participate in hands-on, active computational laboratory-based research, receiving technical training through lab demonstrations and collaborative project participation. Student evaluation is based on suitable progress towards research goals and graduate program progress. May be repeated for credit.
