BCH 687 - Systems-Based Approaches in Biochemistry

(3 units)
Survey of advances in the study of genomes; how its structure is analyzed, how studies can be used to determine function/variations in function, how applications can cross over into various disciplines i.e., drug discovery, genetic engineering.

Prerequisite(s): APST 270  or STAT 152  or STAT 352 ; BCH 405  or BCH 605 

Grading Basis: Graded
Units of Lecture: 3
Offered: Every Spring

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. articulate an understanding of the “‘omics-based” technologies utilized in systems-based approach in biochemistry.
2. explain how systems-based approach in biochemistry can be applied to address specific research questions in specific disciplines and distinguish between research questions that are and are not appropriate for such an approach.
3. manipulate datasets generated through genome analysis using the appropriate computational algorithms.
4. critically evaluate the approach of other researchers and comment on strengths and weaknesses.
5. articulate how systems-based approaches in biochemistry has transformed society through advancements in medicine, agriculture and the environment.
