Description
In this course, for graduate and advanced undergraduate students from the Colleges of Engineering, Sciences and Pharmacy and the School of Medicine, we will discuss: (a) Technologies for high-throughout acquisition of molecular biological data on genomic and proteomic scales, such as DNA and protein arrays; (b) Databases and large-scale datasets generated by national and international consortia as well as individual research groups using these technologies; (c) Mathematical analysis and modeling of these data using ideas from signal processing, numerical computation and information systems; and (d) Biological and medical predictions made by these analyses and models, their experimental tests and their applications toward better understanding of basic biology as well as improved medical diagnosis treatment and drug design.
