The course provides a survey of current and emerging approaches in functional genomics and proteomics, with a focus on experimental design and data interpretation. The course consists in a series of presentations and guided discussions by researchers that are developing cutting-edge functional genomics and/or proteomics approaches.  Topics to be covered this year will include: a) Next Generation nucleic acid sequencing, b) Genetic interactions in model organisms, c) Proteomics and protein interactions, d) High content screening, e) CRISPR technologies, and f) Systematic assay development.  

Student grades will be based on participation to the discussions, presentation of a research paper in a journal club format, submission of a NSERC-style grant application, and a short presentation of the application to the class.

Will you be reclassifying/qualifying this fall? *
With the exception of Biochemistry students, students from other departments must be registered in MMG1012H in order to take topics through the Department of Molecular Genetics. Biochemistry students should confirm with their Graduate Office to ensure our topics can count towards their module courses.
Students should choose multiple topics in order to ensure that they are able to register for topics this Fall. Indicate the priority of this course in relation to your other choices.
