The Genome Analytics course will facilitate a hands-on analytical and quantitative approach for graduate students to learn the basic pipelines for analysis of genomic sequences, focusing on incorporating these bioinformatics pipelines into their own research.
This course uses case studies and discussion to provide students with an appreciation of the process involved in solving turfgrass problems at the managerial level. Using real-life scenarios, students will learn to recognize problems, analyze problems, identify issues that need to be addressed to correct the problems, formulate a set of strategies for solving the problems, and more. Prereq: 4570, or Jr, Sr, or Grad standing.
Introduction to experimental design, including selection and layout of plots, data analysis software, and data interpretation. Prereq: 2260 or Stat 1450, or equiv; or Grad standing.
A physiological and ecological study of the principal vegetable crop species grown for processing and fresh market use. The impacts of integrated crop management and other production systems on vegetable yields and quality are also considered.
