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

Terms: Spr | Units: 3-5

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 3 times (up to 3 units total)

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, Sum | Units: 1

GENE 222: Cloud Computing for Biology and Healthcare (BIOMEDIN 222, CS 273C)

Big Data is radically transforming healthcare. To provide real-time personalized healthcare, we need hardware and software solutions that can efficiently store and process large-scale biomedical datasets. In this class, students will learn the concepts of cloud computing and parallel systems' architecture. This class prepares students to understand how to design parallel programs for computationally intensive medical applications and how to run these applications on computing frameworks such as Cloud Computing and High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Prerequisites: familiarity with programming in Python and R.
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 235: C. Elegans Genetics

Genetic approaches to C. elegans, practice in designing experiments and demonstrations of its growth and anatomy. Probable topics include: growth and genetics, genome map and sequence, mutant screens that start with a desired phenotype, reverse genetics and RNAi screens, genetic duplications, uses of null phenotype non-null alleles, genetic interactions and pathway analysis, and embryogenesis and cell lineage. Focus of action, mosaic analysis, and interface with embryological and evolutionary approaches.
Terms: Win, Spr | Units: 2
Instructors: Fire, A. (PI)

GENE 242: Genetics of Viral Emergence and Emerging Viruses

This course will cover genetic and complementary approaches toward understanding and mitigating the emergence of new viral epidemics.nnTopics are: nI. Viral Emergence ('Viral life in prebiotic soup', 'emergence in cellular contexts', 'viruses from viruses', 'viruses and their non-viral cousins'), nII. Emergent Virology ('tracking the virome', 'genomics of recent viral pandemics', and 'the spectrum of viral malevolence'), andnIII. The Virome Interface ('environmental influences on viral epidemics', 'viruses, genes, and human behavior', 'big data in the service of controlling epidemics', and 'genetic approaches to viral treatment')
Terms: Spr | Units: 2
Instructors: Fire, A. (PI)

GENE 260: Supervised Study

Genetics graduate student lab research from first quarter to filing of candidacy. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
