MCB 536: Tools for Computational Biology

Description

Introduces computational research methods to graduate students in biomedical science and related disciplines. Provides a survey of the most common tools and programming languages in the field. Students will gain foundational knowledge in reproducible computational science, including workflows and code documentation, and sufficient expertise that they can continue learning relevant tools to suit specific research interests.  Classes will involve hands-on learning through coding exercises, collaborative problem solving, and extensive use of online learning resources.
