DESCRIPTION OF COURSES
BI 509/ MBB 602 GENOMICS (3L+0P) III
To provide insight into the functional aspects of cell function by studying the genome as a whole with special emphasis on structural and functional genomics.
Structural genomics: Classical ways of genome analysis, large fragment genomic libraries, physical mapping of genomes, genome sequencing, sequence assembly and annotation, comparative genomics.
Functional genomics: DNA chips and their use in transcriptome analysis, Mutants and RNAi in functional genomics, qPCR, SAGE, MPSS.
Application of genomics in crop improvement, protein structure and function, proteins as enzymes, protein purification, 2D, mass spectrometry.
