GENE 232 Advanced Imaging Lab in Biophysics (APPPHYS 232, BIO 132, BIO 232, BIOPHYS 232)
Laboratory and lectures. Advanced microscopy and imaging, emphasizing hands-on experience with state-of-the-art techniques. Students construct and operate working apparatus. Topics include microscope optics, Koehler illumination, contrast-generating mechanisms (bright/dark field, fluorescence, phase contrast, differential interference contrast), and resolution limits. Laboratory topics vary by yea.... More Description for GENE 232
Terms: 2017-2018 Spring | Units: 4 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
GENE 233 The Biology of Small Modulatory RNAs (MI 233, PATH 233)
Open to graduate and medical students. Explores recent progress and unsolved questions in the field of RNA intereference and microRNA biology. Students are required to read assigned primary literature before each class and actively participate in guided discussions on related technical and conceptual issues during class meetings. Assignments include critiques of assigned papers and developing a no.... More Description for GENE 233
GENE 234 Fundamentals of RNA Biology (MI 234, PATH 234)
For graduate or medical students and (if space allows) to active participants from other segments of the Stanford Community (e.g., TGR students); undergraduates by instructor consent. Fundamental issues of RNA biology, with the goal of setting a foundation for students to explore the expanding world of RNA-based regulation. Each week a topic is covered by a faculty lecture and journal club pres.... More Description for GENE 234
GENE 235 C. Elegans Genetics
Genetic approaches to C. elegans, practice in designing experiments and demonstrations of its growth and anatomy. Probable topics include: growth and genetics, genome map and sequence, mutant screens that start with a desired phenotype, reverse genetics and RNAi screens, genetic duplications, uses of null phenotype non-null alleles, genetic interactions and pathway analysis, and embryogenesis and ....

GENE 236 Deep Learning in Genomics and Biomedicine (BIODS 237, BIOMEDIN 273B, CS 273B)
Recent breakthroughs in high-throughput genomic and biomedical data are transforming biological sciences into "big data" disciplines. In parallel, progress in deep neural networks are revolutionizing fields such as image recognition, natural language processing and, more broadly, AI. This course explores the exciting intersection between these two advances. The course will start with an .... More Description for GENE 236

GENE 243 Intellectual Propery: Scientific Evidence in Patent Litigation
(Same as LAW 343) Open to clinical MD and graduate students. Explores the role of scientific experts in patent infringement litigation. In other areas of the law where scientific experts are used -- medical malpractice, environmental law, criminal law -- the science itself is often in dispute. In patent cases, however, the parties generally agree on the science. This affects the relationship betw.... More Description for GENE 243
GENE 244 Introduction to Statistical Genetics (STATS 344)
Statistical methods for analyzing human genetics studies of Mendelian disorders and common complex traits. Probable topics include: principles of population genetics; epidemiologic designs; familial aggregation; segregation analysis; linkage analysis; linkage-disequilibrium-based association mapping approaches; and genome-wide analysis based on high-throughput genotyping platforms. Prerequisite: S.... More Description for GENE 244
GENE 245 Statistical and Machine Learning Methods for Genomics (BIO 268, BIOMEDIN 245, CS 373, STATS 345)
Introduction to statistical and computational methods for genomics. Sample topics include: expectation maximization, hidden Markov model, Markov chain Monte Carlo, ensemble learning, probabilistic graphical models, kernel methods and other modern machine learning paradigms. Rationales and techniques illustrated with existing implementations used in population genetics, disease association, and fun.... More Description for GENE 245
GENE 260 Supervised Study
