What is a genome? A genome contains all of the information that a cell needs to develop, function, and reproduce itself, and all the information needed for those cells to come together to form a person, plant, or animal. Genomes contain an organism’s complete set of genes, and also the even tinier genetic structures that help regulate when and how those genes are used. The ability to regrow a torn ligament, the clues that might predict the onset of mental illness, the nutritional potential of crops, and even the history of life itself, are all encoded in genomes. By taking this course, you will discover how scientists are deciphering the language of genomes to learn how to develop sustainable food and fuel supplies, improve disease treatment and prevention, and protect our environment. Professor Robinson is the main instructor for this course. In addition, each module features several guest instructors. These guest instructors come from diverse fields of study—biology, physics, computer science, and many others—and pursue diverse research goals, yet they share a common interest in genomic approaches and technologies. The guest instructors include: - Elizabeth (Lisa) Ainsworth, Associate Professor of Plant Biology - Mark Band, Director of the Functional Genomics Facility - Alison Bell, Associate Professor of Animal Biology - Jenny Drnevich, Functional Genomics Bioinformatics Specialist with High-Performance Biological Computing - Christopher Fields, Associate Director of High-Performance Biological Computing - Bruce Fouke, Director of the Roy J. Carver Biotechnology Center - Glenn Fried, Director of the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology Core Facilities - Nigel Goldenfeld, Professor of Physics - Brendan Harley, Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering - Alvaro Hernandez, Director of the High-Throughput Sequencing and Genotyping Facility - Victor Jongeneel, former NCSA Director of Bioinformatics and former Director of High-Performance Biological Computing - Kingsley Boateng, Senior Research Specialist with the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology Core Facilities - Stephen Long, Professor of Plant Biology and Crop Sciences - Ruby Mendenhall, Associate Professor of African American Studies - William Metcalf, Professor of Microbiology - Karen Sears, Assistant Professor of Animal Biology - Saurabh Sinha, Associate Professor of Computer Science - Lisa Stubbs, Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology - Rachel Whitaker, Associate Professor of Microbiology - Derek Wildman, Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology - Peter Yau, Director of the Protein Sciences Facility...

Nice course with the basics of genomics. The activities are according to the lessons. There are a lot of active people, so you do not have to worry about waiting for peer activities.

This course helped me better understand genomics. The instructors used simple language and were easy to understand. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested.

It was nice to have the ability to audit this class. However, I was locked out of the weekly tests and projects. The subject format was excellent. However, the structure and formate of the practice tests needed work.

Overall Good, But expected a little bit on application of coding, simple algorithms in the syllabus.

Es el primer curso del que me doy de baja. Las clases son monótonas y básicamente son expertos del área dando opiniones y entrevistas que no profundizan en los temas.

Superficial, excessive time to talk about the talk. But the most annoying: extremely imprecise. For me it was a waste of time and I gave up after the 1st week.

The course should focus more on the achievemnts of the professors, than a description of what they are doing. So you can get more information about Genomics.

Eu não consigo entender o que devo fazer no curso, os videos são simples e muito bons, mas as tarefas, são muito complicadas, o meu prazo expirou e eu ainda não entendo o porque disso, tentei de todas as formas procurar ajuda e entrar em contato, mas não consegui . O sistema de tarefa e atividades de vocês é extremamente confuso, e me ocupou um tempo precioso, agora terei de recompensar o meu tempo perdido.

noticed various definitions of genome given instead of one all inclusive solid definition. Giving various definitions in a course for beginners can be confusing for early students.

Materials dont correspond to the subject being taught and the quiz is poorly designed.

Peer graded assignments should be removed from this course.

So difficult to get someone to reviwe your assignment
