Each week faculty will provide a two hour lecture on a current topic within Genomics, a two hour discussion section exploring a significant paper, and a two hour lecture on the Perl programming language.
The overall course grade will be based four problem sets that require the creation of Perl scripts to process biological data (40%), on participation in discussion sections including four write-ups (30%), and a final exam (30%).
