3 credits

The primary goal of this course is to introduce and describe the latest advances in molecular biology, genomics computational biotechnology, and their interrelationships through classroom and computer laboratory exercises. Discussions will also place these topics in a marine and evolutionary context. We will study the milestone discoveries, which led to the rise of genomics, characteristics of the wide spectrum of different genomes (prokaryotic, eukaryotic and organellar), innovative molecular techniques and computational tools used to study these genomes, and the impact of genomics on current biological issues and problems.
