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 ....

Focus is on acquiring the necessary skills to boost their productivity by learning state-of-the-art and cutting-edge techniques to retrieve and process big data. Course introduces Unix/Linux, R, ggplot2 g.... More Description for BIOS 248
BIOS 249 Interactive Microbiology
Focus is on phototactic behavior of single celled organisms and the biophysical principles of feedback control and hydrodynamics underlying it. Enables real biology experimentation in the cloud, and is ultimately intended to illustrate and teach the scientific method (free exploration, hypothesis formation, measurement, data analysis, modeling, conclusions).
BIOS 250 Preparation and Practice: Interdisciplinary Drug Discovery
Focuses on decision making in science, with particular attention to skills for identifying when to solicit interdisciplinary input, and how to guide such discussions to productive endpoints. Uses case studies based on Novartis projects to teach ways to leverage interdisciplinary knowledge, effectively communicate across disciplines, and drive teams to decision points. Two-day workshop presented by.... More Description for BIOS 250

BIOS 251 Biotechnology in the Natural World (SBIO 251)
Life can be found in some of the strangest and most inhospitable places of Earth. Whether in hot springs, oceanic depths, or dense rainforests, living organisms must be natural specialists to survive. This course explores a selection of strange and ingenious biomolecules that natural organisms have evolved in order to survive. Lectures will cover historical background as well as detailed investiga.... More Description for BIOS 251
BIOS 252 Experimental strategies for understanding plant-environmental responses
This mini-course will explore the specific aspects of the environment that plants sense, the impacts these stimuli have on plant physiology and the state-of-the-art in experimental methods used to study plant-environmental interactions. Each week will include a lecture, group discussion and lab focused on one of three key environments: the soil, canopy and agricultural field. Lectures will provide.... More Description for BIOS 252
BIOS 253 Discovery and Innovation in Emerging Viral Infections
An interdisciplinary mini course focused on challenges posed by emerging viruses and innovative efforts to overcome them. Modules include epidemiology and ecology of emerging viral infections, such as Ebola, dengue, and Zika, discovery of new emerging viruses, development and application of molecular assays for the diagnosis and management of emerging viral infections, bioinformatics and genetic a....
