Application of a broad knowledge base in genome biology
Students can apply basic concepts in genetics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics in solving metagenomics problems.
Deep knowledge skills in metagenomics
Students will demonstrate expanded understanding of metagenomic and comparative genomic theories and techniques.
Laboratory skills in metagenomics
Students can predict metagenomic content from samples, and compare genomic and metagenomic content across samples.
Computational research management skills
Students can assemble and annotate genomes, including targeted shotgun metagenomes.
Literature analysis and writing skills
Students can analyze, interpret, and present methodology and results of their own creation in the format of primary literature.
