BIOS 221: Modern Statistics for Modern Biology (STATS 366)

Application based course in nonparametric statistics. Modern toolbox of visualization and statistical methods for the analysis of data, examples drawn from immunology, microbiology, cancer research and ecology. Methods covered include multivariate methods (PCA and extensions), sparse representations (trees, networks, contingency tables) as well as nonparametric testing (Bootstrap, permutation and Monte Carlo methods). Hands on, use R and cover many Bioconductor packages. Prerequisite: Minimal familiarity with computers.

BIOS 273: The Cell's Antenna: Cilia in Evolution, Development, and Human Health

Most cells in your body have an antenna. This antenna, called the cilium, has recently emerged as a key player in cancer, development, and cell cycle regulation. This mini-course will introduce students to fundamental concepts, such as the evolution and structure of cilia, signaling function in development and cell cycle processes, and specialized cilia. Through lecture and paper-based discussions, we will address how ciliary dysfunctional contributions to cancer and developmental syndromes. Advances such as super-resolution microscopy and proteomic techniques will also be covered. No prior knowledge required, only enthusiasm for learning how cilia connect to your research field.
