BIOS 271 Writing Graduate Research Fellowships
Initial sessions focus on the basics of grantsmanship, review criteria (i.e. intellectual merit and broader impact), and required materials, with particular focus on the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Students draft a 2-page research proposal and 3-page personal, relevant background and future goals statement. During small group peer review sessions,.... More Description for BIOS 271

BIOS 272 Zebrafish as a Vertebrate Model Organism
By discussing papers from the scientific literature, this class will familiarize students with the advantages of the zebrafish model system for the analysis of vertebrate biology. Topics will include the genetic, cellular, and molecular analysis of embryonic development and nervous system function in zebrafish. Students will learn to critically evaluate papers from the literature and communicate .... More Description for BIOS 272
BIOS 273 The Cell's Antenna: Cilia in Evolution, Development, and Human Health
Most cells in your body have an antenna. This antenna, called the cilium, has recently emerged as a key player in cancer, development, and cell cycle regulation. This mini-course will introduce students to fundamental concepts, such as the evolution and structure of cilia, signaling function in development and cell cycle processes, and specialized cilia. Through lecture and paper-based discussions.... More Description for BIOS 273
BIOS 274 Introductory Python Programming for Genomics
An inherent part of genomics research is the creation and then analysis of large quantities of data. A variety of useful tools arenavailable for data analysis; however, research often requires the skill to create software scripts to extend the analysis. You will learnnthe basics of the Python programming language. Lectures will foster developing the basics through the process of writing code.nDisc.... More Description for BIOS 274

Instructors: Sherlock, G. (PI)
The organogenesis of the human central nervous system is an intricately orchestrated series of events that occurs over several months and ultimately gives rise to the circuits underlying cognition and behavior. There is a pressing need for developing reliable, realistic, and personalized in vitro models of the human brain to advance our understanding of neural development, evolution, and disease. ....

BIOS 276 Measuring and Predicting Spatial Patterns
The goal of our workshop course will be to introduce students in the biomedical sciences to the basic quantitative tools of statistical physics and theoretical ecology that can be used to describe changing spatial patterns and collective movement in cell systems. Recent advances in imaging have led to new research questions on collective movement and spatial pattern in cells. We will work with dat.... More Description for BIOS 276

BIOS 277 Prions in Health & Disease
Prions consist of misfolded, polymerized proteins and are agents of transmissible neurodegenerative diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease of man. However, "prion-like" polymerization of proteins is a more general phenomenon involved in a long-term memory, innate immunity and most likely other important functions. In microbes, prions are non0Mende.... More Description for BIOS 277
