The sequence of the human genome, and that of other animals and plants, highlights the rapid progress in genomics, the study of the DNA sequence and genes of an organism. This course will examine recent findings in the field, with an emphasis on how advances in genomics are revolutionizing the ways by which we assign functions to sequence and genes. While human genomics will feature prominently, examples will be selected from diverse organisms to illustrate basic principle.
