VETMM 6150 - Drug Discovery and Genomics

Spring. 2 credits.

R. Collins.

The course will draw on recent progress in genetics and genomics to explore the applications of biodiversity to biomedicine. The goal of this course is to aid the skill development of biomedical problem oriented researchers who have basic familiarity with computational biology as an integral part of their experimental bench science education. This course will be of particular interest to students in the Fields of Pharmacology, Genomics, and Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology, Microbiology and Comparative Biomedical Sciences. Topics covered will include drug targeting and development via computational biology, pharmacology in silico, bioinformatics, signal transduction, microbial biotechnology and protein engineering. The emphasis will be on general principles and case-based studies. Students will deploy these approaches with assignments tailored to each student’s research interest.
