This course introduces you to the basic biology of modern genomics and the experimental tools that we use to measure it. We'll introduce the Central Dogma of Molecular Biology and cover how next-generation sequencing can be used to measure DNA, RNA, and epigenetic patterns. You'll also get an introduction to the key concepts in computing and data science that you'll need to understand how data from next-generation sequencing experiments are generated and analyzed.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO GENOMIC TECHNOLOGIES
Clear and concise. Ministered by researchers with outstanding background in research, able to translate topics of relatively high complexity into easy language for a broad audience.
The final project was way more work than any of the other weeks (10 hours!), but it was definitely worth stumbling my way around Galaxy and foreign genomic terms for that long.
This class provided a great overview of the involved topics. Some more challenging problem solving question and deeper insights into the topics would make the class an even better learning experience.
Thanks to everyone who made this. Such can wait to start the second course. h a superb course; it started slowly and sort of an easy thing, but the last lecture was phenomenal
