BIOS 237 Investigating Biology with Fluorescent Proteins
Focuses on fluorescent proteins, a proven research tool for imaging a wide range of biological phenomena and continuously uncover exciting discoveries in many areas. Students gain practical expertise in concepts, methodology, and data analysis through lectures, literature discussion, and hands-on computer exercises with "real world" data.
BIOS 238 Quantitative single cell analysis of live cell images
BIOS 239 Synapse Development
Focuses on the mechanisms of synapse development, including the role of adhesion molecules in establishing neuronal contacts, the function of synapse-inducing molecules, how pre- and postsynaptic material is transported to nascent synapses, synapse maturation, synapse elimination as well as how synaptic dysfunction may lead to neurological disorders. Readings from primary literature.
BIOS 240 Cellular Metabolism: An Emerging Hallmark of Cancer and Aging
Introduction to cellular metabolism, including changes in metabolic flux that drive diverse disease states from cancer to aging. Topics covered include cancer metabolism, cellular nutrient sensing, metabolism in aging, and the influence of metabolism on stem cell fate. This course uses discussion of recent advances in the field to place an emphasis on practical applications, including the integrat.... More Description for BIOS 240
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
Terms: 2017-2018 Autumn | Units: 2 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit
BIOS 243 Grant Writing Academy Mini Course: Specific Aims
Concise overview of the fundamentals for writing competitive NIH Kirschtein NRSA fellowships (F31, F32) and K Awards. Topics include developing specific aims; outlining research and career development plans; and using the review criteria to inform writing. Participants develop their one-page NIH-Specific Aims document with an emphasis on in-class peer review and protected daily proposal writing. S.... More Description for BIOS 243
