Making a dent in America’s healthcare challenges seems daunting. Presently, many feel that Artificial Intelligence is a true juggernaut in Healthcare and Life Sciences…but how much is Hype, Hoopla, or Hope?
This course will provide an overview of the current major genome engineering platforms and cover CRISPR genome editing technology in depth. The first part of the course will focus on the general principles of genome editing technology including design, choice of format, delivery, efficiency, specificity, clonal isolation, genotyping, and validation. The second part of the [....]
Statistical analyses are regularly required for nearly every quantitative scientific study. Although simple data analysis tools are tenable for small-scale analyses, more rigorous software can enhance analysis replicability, improve data management, and facilitate more advanced analysis techniques in addition to scaling up to larger datasets. One such program, R is a free, open-source software that [....]

Background Computational techniques have become essential in guiding and complementing experimental efforts to gain insight into the structure and function of proteins. In particular, molecular modeling and dynamics simulations play key roles in modern studies of molecular recognition, drug design, functional mechanisms, conformational changes, and protein evolution. Therefore, developing fundamental understanding of these techniques will [....]
