Computational approaches to the study of properties of eukaryotic and prokaryotic genomes, genome evolution, and statistical and computational methods for genome analyses and comparisons. Topics include composition of prokaryotic genomes, eukaryotic chromosome structure, lateral gene transfer, genome rearrangements. Emphasis will be placed on biological interpretations of sequence data. 2 hours lecture and 2 hours lab per week.
