Quantitative Methods in Genetics and Genomics is designed to teach experimental and analytical approaches in modern genetics and genomics, from experimental design through data analysis in each of several topic areas. Lecturers this year include Gene Yeo, Scott Rifkin, Bruce Hamilton, Rob Knight, Olivier Harismendy, Nicholas Schork, Aaron Chang and Hannah Carter.
This course is a requirement for students in the UCSD Genetics Training Program. 4 units.
