187.633: Introduction to Environmental Genomics and Epigenomics


How to use the tools publicly available for genomic and epigenomic data analysis? How to generate key figures from omic analysis?

Emphasizes the analytical methods for genomic and epigenomic data analysis. It presents step-by-step instructions for searching and extracting databases and performing pathway analyses on existing genomic and/or epigenomic data. In addition, this course acquaints students with ‘omic’ data analysis by participating group project that aims for proving the principle or generating new hypothesis for a selected research topic.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:

  1. Understand the workflow for omic data analysis
  2. Apply the publicly available tools for the search, access and analysis of genomic data
  3. Apply computational analysis to identify or validate cellular pathways
Methods of Assessment:
