Beyond DNA: The Omics Revolution

PWR 1JS - Winter 2014 - Instructor: Stonaker, J.
Last Updated: 15-Jan-2014

A guide to resources for the PWR 1JS: Beyond DNA: The Omics Revolution. The framework for this course is omics, the study of large biological data sets. This includes fields such as genomics (DNA data), metabolomics (chemical reaction data), and syndromics (health symptom data). These new omic technologies promise to revolutionize medicine, but they also spark a larger debate about how scientific data is used in human health and policy decisions.
