New Course: “Current Trends in Genomics Data Analysis” Offered This Spring

A new course will be offered to students at UWM this spring focusing on understanding the relative importance of data generated from genomics research.

The goal of the course, taught by Dr. Raymond Hovey, is to give graduate students and advanced undergraduate students an understanding of data analysis methods for genomics research with emphasis on the bioinformatic tools involved. Each session will feature a major topic in Genomics, with student presentations centered on selected publications within the topic area. The course is designed such that students will come away understanding the analysis involved for different types of genomics research. Students will explore the different types of data produced from genomics research projects, some of the applications and software used to analyze the data. Titled FRSHWTR-901, more information can be found through UWM’s schedule of classes.
