Teaching


Biotechnology (Biol 4024) Students investigate core and cutting edge methods underlying the development of applications in biomedicine, agriculture, and environmental science, including molecular biology, genetic manipulations, and genome sequencing. The primary learning objective is for students to readily identify relevant techniques that will help them to address a diverse set of biological questions. Syllabus.

Biostatistics (Biol 3763). I will be teaching this course in spring 2018; see Mike Wunder’s course description here.

Ecological Genomics. This is a project-based course, including hands-on exercises in manipulating and analyzing genomic and transcriptomic data to answer ecological or evolutionary questions. Students develop independent projects using their own data or using mined data from NCBI, EMBL, etc. This is periodically offered as a special topics course. Syllabus.
