Translational Bioinformatics


Stanford School of Medicine



Please note: Winter Quarter 2018-2019 course will not be recorded. It is only available to students who can come on-campus. Attendance is mandatory.

This course is focused on the convergence of molecular bioinformatics, biostatistics and statistical genetics. Bioinformatics optimizes translational medicine through the transformation of data into diagnostics, prognostics and therapeutics.

Students will analyze genetic, genomic, and biological data to become skilled at identifying different types of genome-scale measurements in molecular biology and genomic medicine. Case studies and a course project will enforce your understanding of course material and address new questions in the biomedical industry.
