BIOS 255 Promises and Pitfalls: A Critical Evaluation of Neuroscience Techniques
The complexity of modern neuroscience requires researchers to develop an interdisciplinary approach. This course explores multiple technologies for understanding the brain and is less a survey of different techniques than a critical comparison of them. With the goal of incorporating a new technique into their own research projects, students will address potential advantages, disadvantages and limi.... More Description for BIOS 255

BIOS 256 Sculptural Data Illustrations
Mini-course. Students will use learn make and print 3D models of their data to use as a focal point when describing their project. We will teach the students how to use Autocad and Blender to process existing data sets and students are encouraged to bring their own data. We strive to make wearable models to enable instant mini-lectures any place and anytime.

BIOS 259 Statistical Genetics of Complex Traits
This mini-course provides an overview of statistical methods for analyzing human genetic variation and for understanding the genetic basis of complex traits. Topics include: principles of population genetics; effects of evolutionary forces on pattern of genomic variation; epidemiologic designs; genotype-phenotype association analyses of complex traits; missing heritability. Weekly interactive comp.... More Description for BIOS 259
BIOS 261 Plant Anatomy and Cellular Structure: Fundamental Concepts to Interpret Data
Plant anatomy and cell biology. This two-week mini course will introduce the cell types of major organ systems in flowering plants through lectures and readings. Classic and modern techniques to highlight plant cell structures and dynamic processes such as changes in hormone concentration and microtubule dynamics will be presented in laboratory sections immediately following each lecture. Limit.... More Description for BIOS 261
BIOS 262 Learning to Fly: Drosophila Research Methods
This week-long mini-course will be an overview of the fly as a model system, and the tools available to fly researchers. It will cover topics like history, anatomy, development, online databases, genetic toolkits, genome editing techniques, and stem cell, immunology, and neural research methods. Lectures will be given by experts in the field, who will also be encouraged to discuss the advantages a.... More Description for BIOS 262
BIOS 263 Applied Grant-Writing Skills for Fellowships
Graduate students in the Biosciences PhD Programs develop a fellowship proposal (e.g. NIH F31) focusing on required documents: 1-page specific aims as well as research and career development plans. Students establish a writing practice and learn fundamental grant writing skills through guided exercises, including in-class review and focused faculty feedback.
