Overview

In this Bioinformatics Capstone - Big Data in Biology offered by Coursera in partnership with UC San Diego, you will learn how to use the BaseSpace cloud platform developed by Illumina (our industry partner) to apply several standard bioinformatics software approaches to real biological data.

Educational Opportunity

In particular, in a series of Application Challenges will see how genome assembly can be used to track the source of a food poisoning outbreak, how RNA-Sequencing can help us analyze gene expression data on the tissue level, and compare the pros and cons of whole genome vs. whole exome sequencing for finding potentially harmful mutations in a human sample.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Identifying the Culprit in a Food Poisoning Outbreak
  • Comparing Gene Expression in Tissue Samples with RNA-Seq
  • Weighing the Pros and Cons of Whole Genome and Whole Exome Sequencing on a Human Sample
