BIOS 204: Practical Tutorial on the Modeling of Signal Transduction Motifs

Basics of ordinary differential equation modeling of signal transduction motifs, small circuits of regulatory proteins and genes that serve as building blocks of complex regulatory circuits. Morning session covers numerical modeling experiments. Afternoon session explores theory underpinning that day's modeling session. Modeling done using Mathematica, Standard Edition provided to enrolled students.

BIOS 205: Introduction to R for Data Analysis

Autumn quarter enrollment limited to ADVANCE students; instructor consent required for enrollment. Topics include: basics of R (widely used, open-source programming and data analysis environment) programming language and data structures, reading/writing files, graphics tools for figure generation, basic statistical and regression operations, survey of relevant R library packages. Interactive format combining lectures and computer lab. For course and enrollment information, see https://web.stanford.edu/~sbagley2/bios205/

Instructors: Bagley, S. (PI)

BIOS 226: Introduction to Force Spectroscopy

Mini-course. Covers the fundamentals of major single-molecule manipulation methods (optical tweezers, magnetic tweezers, and atomic force microscopy), principles of force measurement signal and noise, and applications to studies of folding, binding, measurement signal and noise, and applications to studies of folding, binding, polymer elasticity, and structural transitions in proteins and nucleic acids. Intended for students with no previous exposure to single-molecule manipulation or for beginning practitioners. Lectures and discussion of current literature.

BIOS 235: Metabolism and Metabolic Ecology: Microbes, Gut and Cancer

Preference to graduate students. Focuses on modern aspects of metabolism and metabolic biochemistry as it affects fitness and ecology of cells and organisms on a systems level. Students obtain a broad understanding of the governing principles and logic of metabolic pathways and their networks as well as an intuition of metabolism in context of natural selection and fitness acting on the cell or host. Emphasis is primarily on microorganisms and their habitats in nature and the human gut, but topics also include metabolism of cancer cells and of engineered microbes.

BIOS 236: Developmental Biology in the Ocean: Comparative Embryology and Larval Development

Three-week course at Hopkins Marine Station. Focuses on the embryology and larval development of a broad range of marine invertebrate phyla. The goal of the course is to give students an appreciation of the range of developmental strategies and larval forms in the ocean and why this is critical for constructing hypotheses of EvoDevo and animal evolution. Includes observation and documentation of the development of embryos and larvae by scientific illustration and photo/video microscopy. Pre-requisite: Developmental Biology coursework and instructor consent.

BIOS 254: DataLucence::Images

Increasingly, research in the biosciences involves data in digital formats and scientists spend a significant fraction of their time building and using software to harvest insight from digital data. A central goal of this course is to expose students to concepts adopted from computer science and data science regarding data management, data curation, and analytical workflows for analyzing digital data. We will focus on digital images since this image type is used in diverse sub-fields in the biosciences. The course will consist of a two-day workshop/lab¿SoftwareCarpentry¿and six DataLucence::Images+Hackathon class meetings.

BIOS 256: Sculptural Data Illustrations

Mini-course. Students will use learn make and print 3D models of their data to use as a focal point when describing their project. We will teach the students how to use Autocad and Blender to process existing data sets and students are encouraged to bring their own data. We strive to make wearable models to enable instant mini-lectures any place and anytime.

BIOS 263: Applied Grant-Writing Skills for Fellowships

Graduate students in the Biosciences PhD Programs develop a fellowship proposal (e.g. NIH F31) focusing on required documents: 1-page specific aims as well as research and career development plans. Students establish a writing practice and learn fundamental grant writing skills through guided exercises, including in-class review and focused faculty feedback.
