From Genetics to Genomics

Organizers:

Christopher Campbell & Kikue Tachibana-Konwalski

Background:

Science is moving from single gene to genome-wide data sets, yet genetics remains a powerful way to discover protein function. We aim to expose students to classical genetics and genomic approaches and demonstrate how these address different types of scientific questions and how they can complement each other.

Objectives:
  • To review the history of genetics
  • To familiarize students with advances in forward and reverse genetic screens
  • To provide an overview of genome-wide sequencing approaches
  • To raise students’ awareness of challenges and pitfalls of genomic data analysis
  • To illustrate the application of genomics to understand disease

 

Contents:
  • Basic principles of genetics and genetic tools available in diverse organisms
  • Genetic screens from yeast to haploid mouse ES cells
  • Advances in chromatin capture techniques
  • Advances in bisulphite sequencing techniques
  • ChIP sequencing and epigenomics
  • Comparative and evolutionary genomics
  • Practical analysis of high-throughput sequencing data
