Seminar in Cancer Genomics

Cancer Genomics

Seminar presenting current computational biology research to identify genomics-based signatures of cancer onset, progression, and treatment response. Examples of such investigations include genetic pathway interpretation of multivariate high-throughput datasets, discovery of mutations in whole-genome sequence, identification and quantification of gene isoforms, alleles, and copy number variants, and machine-learning tools to predict clinical outcomes. Students present their own research, host journal clubs, and attend lectures and teleconferences to learn about research conducted by national and international projects. Enrollment restricted to graduate students. May be repeated for credit. D. Haussler, J. Stuart
