BIOMEDIN 201: Biomedical Informatics Student Seminar

Participants report on recent articles from the Biomedical Informatics literature or their research projects. Goals are to teach critical reading of scientific papers and presentation skills. May be repeated three times for credit.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit
Instructors: Musen, M. (PI)

BIOMEDIN 205: Precision Practice with Big Data

Primarily for M.D. students; open to other graduate students. Provides an overview of how to leverage large amounts of clinical, molecular, and imaging data within hospitals and in cyberspace--big data--to practice medicine more effectively. Lectures by physicians, researchers, and industry leaders survey how the major methods of informatics can help physicians leverage big data to profile disease, to personalize treatment to patients, to predict treatment response, to discover new knowledge, and to challenge established medical dogma and the current paradigm of clinical decision-making based solely on published knowledge and individual physician experience. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisite: background in biomedicine. Background in computer science can be helpful but not required.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit

BIOMEDIN 206: Informatics in Industry

Effective management, modeling, acquisition, and mining of biomedical information in healthcare and biotechnology companies and approaches to information management adopted by companies in this ecosystem. Guest speakers from pharmaceutical/biotechnology companies, clinics/hospitals, health communities/portals, instrumentation/software vendors. May be repeated for credit.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit
Instructors: Shah, N. (PI)

BIOMEDIN 207: Digital Medicine: How health IT is changing the practice of medicine

The widespread use of health IT, such as electronic health records, and of health applications by patients, will radically alter the practice of medicine in the coming decades. This seminar, comprised of guest lectures from industry and academia, will highlight the practical challenges and successes of how health IT has transformed care delivery programs. The seminar will cover current efforts in clinical decision support, patient-centered design, integration with community care, Big Data, and the innovation pipeline for healthcare delivery organizations.
Terms: Sum | Units: 1
Instructors: Cain, C. (PI)

BIOMEDIN 208: Clinical Informatics Literature Review Seminar

Focus is on reading and discussing seminal papers in clinical and health informatics. Topics include biomedical informatics methods, systems design, implementation and evaluation. Limited enrollment.
Terms: Win | Units: 1

BIOMEDIN 210: Modeling Biomedical Systems: Ontology, Terminology, Problem Solving (CS 270)

Methods for modeling biomedical systems and for making those models explicit in the context of building software systems. Emphasis is on intelligent systems for decision support and Semantic Web applications. Topics: knowledge representation, controlled terminologies, ontologies, reusable problem solvers, and knowledge acquisition. Recommended: exposure to object-oriented systems, basic biology.
Terms: Win | Units: 3

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

Capstone Biomedical Informatics (BMI) experience. 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. Issues related to research reproducibility. 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. Preference to BMI graduate students. Consent of instructor required.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3
Instructors: Altman, R. (PI)

BIOMEDIN 214: Representations and Algorithms for Computational Molecular Biology (BIOE 214, CS 274, GENE 214)

Topics: introduction to bioinformatics and computational biology, algorithms for alignment of biological sequences and structures, computing with strings, phylogenetic tree construction, hidden Markov models, Gibbs Sampling, basic structural computations on proteins, protein structure prediction, protein threading techniques, homology modeling, molecular dynamics and energy minimization, statistical analysis of 3D biological data, integration of data sources, knowledge representation and controlled terminologies for molecular biology, microarray analysis, machine learning (clustering and classification), and natural language text processing. Prerequisites: programming skills; consent of instructor for 3 units.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3-4

BIOMEDIN 215: Data Driven Medicine

With the spread of electronic health records and increasingly low cost assays for patient molecular data, powerful data repositories with tremendous potential for biomedical research, clinical care and personalized medicine are being built. But these databases are large and difficult for any one specialist to analyze. To find the hidden associations within the full set of data, we introduce methods for data-mining at the internet scale, the handling of large-scale electronic medical records data for machine learning, methods in natural language processing and text-mining applied to medical records, methods for using ontologies for the annotation and indexing of unstructured content as well as semantic web technologies. Prerequisites: CS 106A; familiarity with statistics and biology. Highly recommended: STATS 216. Recommended: one of CS 246, STATS 305, or CS 229.
