Describe any Sources of Additional Funding
Implementation of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics approaches to biological systems. Students are expected to have completed a prior course in biochemistry and molecular biology. Permission of the instructor is required.
As a result of completing this course, students will be able to:
1. List the principles of important genomics and proteomics methods.
2. Design experimental strategies using genomics and proteomics approach
3. identify sources for bioinformatic tools and evaluate genomics and proteomics data.

Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
This is the only course that integrates all three subjects in the title of the course for graduate students in the biomedical sciences.
BMSC8231 – Introduction to Genomics, Proteomics, and Bioinformatics
The BMSC8231 course entitled “Introduction to Genomics, proteomics and Bioinformatics” is a fusion of two courses: BMSC 8233 – Introduction to Bioinformatics and BMSC8231 – Advanced Proteomics. These two courses have been fused because the use of bioinformatics tools is essential for analysis and interpretation of genomics and proteomics data. Because bioinformatics is inseparable from genomics and proteomics approaches and methodologies this course will provide integrated and, therefore, more efficient learning experience for students. The BMSC8231 will be a 3 credit hours course to reflect increased amount of material that will be covered.

Rollback: The Middle States Commission on Higher Education now requires that all syllabi include average minimum amount of out-of-class or independent learning expected per week. Consult template uploaded with syllabus.
