Description
OMICS AND DATA IN BIOLOGY
** available as of 06/30/2021
The genome projects of the 1990s transformed biology by drawing together biological research with computer automation and a deluge of new data. This seminar will examine historical and philosophical issues surrounding "data-centric" biology, including changes in scientific practice that move it away from experimentation, the rise of model organisms, the explosion of a variety of -omics approaches, the reinscription of identity in genomic terms, and the ownership, regulation, and control of biological data.
