This course is an introduction to genomics and analysis for students with interest in life sciences. It introduces current applications of genomics techniques, covers how to build a genomics workflow, and introduces statistical analyses in R programming language. This course assumes little or no prior programming experience and will provide hands-on experience in taking raw next-generation sequencing data through a custom workflow and ending with analyses in R statistical software. This course emphasizes hands-on computational methodology, bioinformatics data analysis, and interpretation of quantitative information. The primary method of evaluation is through written work and the course will increase students skill in scientific writing and scholarship. Due to the ongoing pandemic, in the Fall of 2020 the course will be all online with both synchronous and asynchronous instruction, discussion groups and cloud based computational projects designed to train transferable skills in big data analysis.
