Welcome to the official course website for BMIF 201.


Our course focuses on quantitative aspects of genetics and genomics, including computational and statistical methods of genomic analysis. We will introduce basic concepts and discuss recent progress in population and evolutionary genetics and cover principles of statistical genetics of Mendelian and complex traits. We will then introduce current genomic technologies and key algorithms in computational biology and bioinformatics. We will discuss applications of these algorithms to genome annotation and analysis of epigenomics, cancer genomics and metagenomics data. Proficiency in programming and basic knowledge of genetics and statistics will be assumed.
