BIOS 241 Dissecting algorithms for RNA Sequencing
Class focuses on a few popular and commonly used algorithms for RNA-Seq analysis. The course dissects the algorithmic assumptions, statistical methods they use to test hypotheses about RNA expression and evaluates properties such as robustness, sensitivity and specificity, highlighting some large "blind spots" in many algorithms.
BIOS 242 Writing Compelling Fellowships and Career Development Awards
An overview of principles and fundamentals for writing competitive fellowships (e.g. NIH F31, F32) and career development awards (e.g. NIH K Awards). Topics include: developing specific aims and career development plans; using the review criteria to inform writing; timelines and resources. Participants develop proposals through guided exercises with an emphasis on in-class peer review and focused .... More Description for BIOS 242

BIOS 246 Introduction to Meta-Analysis
Meta-analysis is the quantitative synthesis and analysis of a collection of independent studies. It provides a more objective and powerful way of summarizing evidence across studies than descriptive reviews. The importance and utility of this quantitative method for answering new questions and synthesizing existing results in different fields of scientific research is demonstrated by the dramatic ....
