As part of the our mission, BAC team members contribute to the advancement and education of data science on the Mizzou campus by teaching or co-teaching courses in their respective areas of expertise. You can find a list of those courses and relevant information below.
Data Science 8110 – Genomic Analytics
Taught by BAC computational biologist Dr. Murugesan Raju, in conjunction with the MU IDSI as part of the Data Science and Analytics Program, this course will introduce the foundational concepts of genomics and bioinformatics. Genomics is a combination of biological and computational methods that explore the roles of DNA, genes, and proteins on a very large scale. However, understanding how to interpret and understand the results depends (at least) on a basic understanding of biology. The course does not assume a student has a biological background and it will cover the concepts necessary to implement genomics methods.
