  • BIOMG 3800 - Advanced Genetics and Genomics
  • BIOMG 4000 - A Genomics Approach to Studying Life
  • BIOMG 4870 - Human Genomics
  • BIOMG 4880 - Cancer Genetics
  • BIOMG 6390 - The Nucleus
  • BIOMI 3940 - Applied and Food Microbiology
  • BIOMI 4850 - Bacterial Genetics
  • BIOMI 6904 - Prokaryotic Biology: Bacterial Genetics
  • BIOMI 6906 - Prokaryotic Biology: Viral Diversity and Ecology
  • BIONB 3230 - Behavioral Ecology, Evolution and Genomics
  • BME 6120 - Precision and Genomic Medicine
  • BTRY 4381/6381 - Biomedical Data Mining and Modeling
  • BTRY 6830 - Quantitative Genomics and Genetics
