Description
This course will offer an overview of faculty research in computational biology, a field of tremendous growth and excitement. It will also offer a sampling of current literature in this field, as well as an opportunity for students to develop and practice their presentation skills. The course will meet once a week, and will follow a seminar-style format, with a PowerPoint presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session. To familiarize students with alternative presentation formats, and to allow for more flexibility, the course may also include one or more webinar/teleconference sessions. Throughout the semester, students will take turns serving as introducer, presenter, and moderator of question-and-answer sessions. The topics covered in this course will be in line with the five specialization areas of the joint CMU-Pitt Ph.D. program in computational biology: computational genomics, computational, structural biology, cellular and systems modeling, bio image informatics, and computational neurobiology. The initial meeting will feature an icebreaker exercise and a refresher on professional presentation skills.
