1 - 10 of 28 results for: GENE

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

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

Students analyze cutting edge science, develop a logical framework for evaluating evidence and models, and enhance their ability to design original research through exposure to experimental tools and strategies. The class runs in parallel with the Frontiers in Biological Research seminar series. Students and faculty meet on the Tuesday preceding each seminar to discuss a landmark paper in the speaker's field of research. Following the Wednesday seminar, students meet briefly with the speaker for a free-range discussion which can include insights into the speakers' paths into science and how they pick scientific problems.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit

GENE 216: Practical Considerations and Industry Perspective on Academic-Industry Collaborations

Provides an overview, fundamentals and practical considerations for different aspects of academic-industry collaborations by inviting current industrial experts to share their views and to answer questions. The different aspects include collaboration models, proposal building, IP right sharing, funding opportunities, sabbatical and internship in industry, industry job searching, etc. This class also serves as a platform to connect with Bay Area biotech and pharmaceutical executives and experts.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1
Instructors: Duan, D. (PI)

GENE 219: Current Issues in Genetics

Current Issues in Genetics is an in-house seminar series that meets each Academic Quarter tor one hour per week (Friday, 4:00-5:00) and features talks by Genetics Department faculty, students, and postdoctoral fellows (with occasional visiting speakers from other Stanford departments). Thus, over the Academic Year, it provides a comprehensive overview of the work going on in the Department. Student attendance at the seminars will be required, with short written assignments (typically three per Quarter) to encourage thinking about the material presented in the talks.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1

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

GENE 222: Parallel Computing for Healthcare

In this class, students will acquire the concepts of parallel computing, parallel systems' architecture, and parallel algorithms. This class prepares students to understand how to design parallel programs for computationally intensive medical applications, and run these applications on large-scale computing frameworks such as Cloud Computing and High Computing (HPC) systems. Prerequisites: familiarity with programming in Python or C/C++.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3

GENE 224: Principles of Pharmacogenomics (BIOMEDIN 224)

This course is an introduction to pharmacogenomics, including the relevant pharmacology, genomics, experimental methods (sequencing, expression, genotyping), data analysis methods and bioinformatics. The course reviews key gene classes (e.g., cytochromes, transporters) and key drugs (e.g., warfarin, clopidogrel, statins, cancer drugs) in the field. Resources for pharmacogenomics (e.g., PharmGKB, Drugbank, NCBI resources) are reviewed, as well as issues implementing pharmacogenomics testing in the clinical setting. Reading of key papers, including student presentations of this work; problem sets; final project selected with approval of instructor. Prerequisites: two of BIO 41, 42, 43, 44X, 44Y or consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 3

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, basic cell biology, and consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4

GENE 260: Supervised Study

Genetics graduate student lab research from first quarter to filing of candidacy. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-18 | Repeatable for credit
