GENE 212: Introduction to Biomedical Informatics Research Methodology (BIOE 212, BIOMEDIN 212, CS 272)

Hands-on software building. Student teams conceive, design, specify, implement, evaluate, and report on a software project in the domain of biomedicine. Creating written proposals, peer review, providing status reports, and preparing final reports. Guest lectures from professional biomedical informatics systems builders on issues related to the process of project management. Software engineering basics. Because the team projects start in the first week of class, attendance that week is strongly recommended. Prerequisites: BIOMEDIN 210 or 211 or 214 or 217 or consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Altman, R. (PI)

GENE 241: Biological Macromolecules (BIOC 241, BIOPHYS 241, SBIO 241)

The physical and chemical basis of macromolecular function. Topics include: forces that stabilize macromolecular structure and their complexes; thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of macromolecular folding, binding, and allostery; diffusional processes; kinetics of enzymatic processes; the relationship of these principles to practical application in experimental design and interpretation. The class emphasizes interactive learning, and is divided equally among lectures, in-class group problem solving, and discussion of current and classical literature. Enrollment limited to 50. Prerequisites: Background in biochemistry and physical chemistry recommended but material available for those with deficiency in these areas; undergraduates with consent of instructor only.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3-5 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

GENE 245: Statistical and Machine Learning Methods for Genomics (BIO 268, BIOMEDIN 245, CS 373, STATS 345)

Introduction to statistical and computational methods for genomics. Sample topics include: expectation maximization, hidden Markov model, Markov chain Monte Carlo, ensemble learning, probabilistic graphical models, kernel methods and other modern machine learning paradigms. Rationales and techniques illustrated with existing implementations used in population genetics, disease association, and functional regulatory genomics studies. Instruction includes lectures and discussion of readings from primary literature. Homework and projects require implementing some of the algorithms and using existing toolkits for analysis of genomic datasets.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

GENE 199: Undergraduate Research

Students undertake investigations sponsored by individual faculty members. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-18 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

GENE 209: Current Topics in Human, Population, and Statistical Genomics

Intensive seminar/workshop. Topics, drawn from current and past literature, may include: assessing and population genetic analysis of genomic variation; genome-to-phenome mapping; reconstructing demographic history from genome sequence data; domestication genomics; host-pathogen genome evolution; detecting signatures of selection; experimental design in human genetics; linkage and association mapping; ethical and social issues in human, plant, and animal genetics research. Emphasis on analysis and logic or experimental and observational genomics research. Faculty-led discussion with evaluation of response papers, problem sets, and intensive course project. May be repeated for credit.
Terms: offered occasionally | Units: 2 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

GENE 213: Neurogenetics Core

For first-year Neurosciences graduate students; open to other graduate students as space permits with preference given to Neurosciences students. Intensive introduction to genetics. Classical and modern genetics with an emphasis on their application to neurosciences research. Topics include: model organisms, genetic screens, genome editing, genetically-encoded tools, GWAS, next-generation sequencing, epigenetics, genetic interactions, human genetics, and neurological disease genetics. Interactive class with student-led discussions, presentations, and group work, including next-generation sequencing workshops and data analysis tutorials. Limited enrollment.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Gitler, A. (PI)

GENE 215: Frontiers in Biological Research (BIOC 215, DBIO 215)

Literature discussion in conjunction with the Frontiers in Biological Research seminar series in which investigators present current work. Students and faculty meet beforehand to discuss papers from the speaker's primary research literature. Students meet with the speaker after the seminar to discuss their research and future directions, commonly used techniques to study problems in biology, and comparison between the genetic and biochemical approaches in biological research.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Satisfactory/No Credit

GENE 221: Current Issues in Aging

Current research literature on genetic mechanisms of aging in animals and human beings. Topics include: mitochondria mutations, insulin-like signaling, sirtuins, aging in flies and worms, stem cells, human progeria, and centenarian studies. Prerequisite: GENE 203, 205 or BIOS 200.
Terms: Spr | Units: 2 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

GENE 232: Advanced Imaging Lab in Biophysics (APPPHYS 232, BIO 132, BIO 232, BIOPHYS 232)

Laboratory and lectures. Advanced microscopy and imaging, emphasizing hands-on experience with state-of-the-art techniques. Students construct and operate working apparatus. Topics include microscope optics, Koehler illumination, contrast-generating mechanisms (bright/dark field, fluorescence, phase contrast, differential interference contrast), and resolution limits. Laboratory topics vary by year, but include single-molecule fluorescence, fluorescence resonance energy transfer, confocal microscopy, two-photon microscopy, microendoscopy, and optical trapping. Limited enrollment. Recommended: basic physics, Biology core or equivalent, and consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
