Analysis of -omics data

4 November 2011 Comments off

In the post-genomic era, sophisticated computational and statistical methods of analyzing transcriptomics and proteomics data are increasingly used to generate hypotheses and to draw scientific conclusions. Consequently, students in biochemistry and other life sciences need familiarity with such methods in order to critically read much of the literature. In addition, exposure to these techniques may help students interpret their own data in graduate studies and in future research careers.

The Biochemistry Graduate Program of the University of Ottawa is offering BCH5101 for Winter 2012 to meet this growing need. For more information, see Analysis of -omics data (BCH5101).
