Enviromics and Biostatistics
This course demonstrates how omics techniques and biostatistics can be applied in the field of environmental research and to find solution and management strategies for environmental contamination problems in water, sediment, soil and air.
The advent of whole-genome sequencing, mRNA sequencing, targeted gene sequencing and peptide sequencing has revolutionised the environmental studies. Hence, the course will focus on studies involving biological sequence data (sequence bioinformatics) and macromolecular structures (structural bioinformatics) from environmental samples such as cells, DNA, mRNA and protein to develop models for various environmental remediation strategies.
This course also introduces students to biostatistical principles and methods and their application for environmental research.
The course is divided into lectures, computer laboratory experiments and assignments. The course will facilitate understanding of the environmental related omics methods and statistical tools.
