IDM 2014 - FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS OF MICROBIAL PATHOGENS
Functional genomics involves the systematic study of genes and their function. This course will introduce many of these innovative technologies for the systematic analysis of gene function including gene discovery, transcriptome analysis, random and targeted gene disruption strategies, proteomics, metabolomics, and integrative systems approaches with a particular emphasis on their application to infectious disease pathogens and their interaction with their host cells. We will also examine the genomes of well-studied pathogens and explore how these technologies have been used to study their biology and pathogenesis and the application of these techniques for drug and vaccine targeting and development.
