New undergrad course offers comprehensive overview of genome science tech

Greg Wray and Susanne Haga are co-teaching a new undergraduate course this fall called Current Technologies in Genomics and Precision Medicine  (BIO325/MGM325). The course aims to provide a comprehensive overview of genome science technologies, analytical tools, clinical applications, and related issues. Students will gain exposure to a range of technologies currently used in research and some in clinical practice, as well as the tools to interrogate the large data-sets generated by these technologies. They will have the opportunity to explore the range of datasets publicly available and analyze genomic datasets to gain firsthand experience with the tools. Development of this course was supported by Bass Connections Course Development award.
