Genomics and Bioinformatics

Inexpensive next-generation sequencing and other high-throughput technologies are revolutionizing the ways that we address fundamental questions in biology from development to evolution to disease. Because of the unprecedented amounts of data these technologies make available, we can begin to address biological questions in their full complexity. Answering these questions is a deeply interdisciplinary activity, requiring the skills of biologists, statisticians, computer scientists, and bioinformaticians
