BCB 509 Evolutionary Biology for non-Life Scientists

BCB 509 Evolutionary Biology for non-Life Scientists (3 cr)

This course is offered by Michigan State University as part of the National Science Foundation BEACON Science and Technology Center on 'evolution in action'. Life-scientists in general, and evolutionary biologists in particular, have a particular way of looking at the world that may seem unfamiliar or unusual to non-biologists. In this class, students learn to 'think' like an evolutionary biologist. This course builds a working understanding of biological evolution, enabling effective collaboration with evolutionary biologists. (Fall only)

Prereq: Graduate Standing

BCB 510 Computational Science for Biologists

BCB 510 Computational Science for Biologists (3 cr)

This course is offered by Michigan State University as part of the National Science Foundation BEACON Science and Technology Center on 'evolution in action'. This course develops computational skills and quantitative reasoning abilities, computational thinking, and exposure to computational research in evolutionary and molecular biology. We introduce the Python programming language, scripting and pipelining, simulations, and data analysis. We also introduce the Avida artificial life program as a platform for in silico evolution experimentations. (Fall only)

Prereq: Biol 421 or Instructor Permission

BCB 511 Applied Bioinformatics

BCB 511 Applied Bioinformatics (3 cr)

A data driven approach to the computational and statistical understanding required to solve bioinformatics problems encountered in genome scale research. Recommended Preparation: CS 120, Stat 301, or Biol 456. (Spring, alt/yrs)

BCB 512 Multidisciplinary Approaches to the Study of Evolution

BCB 512 Multidisciplinary Approaches to the Study of Evolution (3 cr)

This course is offered by Michigan State University as part of the National Science Foundation BEACON Science and Technology Center on 'evolution in action'. This project-based course prepares students for team-based, multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional research into the evolutionary dynamics of biological and computational systems. The course objective is to recognize and overcome challenges such as discipline-specific languages, customs and world views. Students will also learn fundamentals of experimental design and statistical analysis. (Spring only)
