This option combines the main course and computational lab components of HGV. HGV exposes students to the power of genomic studies for understanding human evolutionary history, biological traits, and genetic conditions. HGV incorporates basic population genetics, direct-to-consumer DNA tests, and emerging research on human populations and their ancestors. What does real human genomic data look like? How are these data analyzed in practice? Supplementing the main course, the computational lab component will explore public datasets and bioinformatic tools used to analyze human genomic data to better understand how patterns in these data can be used to test hypotheses about evolution and human phenotypes.

AIDS
AS.020.347 (01)

AIDS is the world's deadliest infectious disease. This course will cover the biology of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV, the infectious agent that causes AIDS), the effects of HIV on the immune system, the pharmacology of the anti-viral agents that are used to suppress HIV infection, and the ongoing quest for an HIV vaccine. Because HIV drugs cannot cure HIV-infected individuals and no HIV vaccine yet exists, we will also study the long-term consequences of HIV infection including opportunistic infections, comorbid conditions, and the HIV-related cancers Kaposi's Sarcoma and AIDS-Related lymphoma.

Advanced Research Lab in Cell and Molecular Biology
AS.020.361 (01)

An intensive research laboratory course on single-molecule, live-cell imaging of chromatin and epigenetic factors designed for undergraduate students with interests in biochemistry, molecular, cellular and computational biology. The course introduces the use of advanced fluorescence microscopy to visualize the single-molecule dynamic behaviors and spatial distributions of important nuclear proteins and chromatin factors in living cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model for conserved epigenetic regulators in humans. Students will learn and apply imaging and computational tools to localize and track single protein molecules in real time and calculate their diffusive parameters. Students are expected to interpret and integrate data to acquire conceptual insights on chromatin functions, e.g. how chromatin proteins, enzymes, and large protein complexes are distributed in nuclear space and time. Because of COVID constraints, the course will be given by remote access: lectures, seminars, computation workshops, data analysis, discussion, presentation. (In-person microscope instruction and data collection will require reopening of University laboratories to undergraduates. If allowed after spring break or in summer or fall sessions, students have the option of one additional credit for the course as sponsored Independent Research). After course completion, there is a further option for post-course research in the Wu laboratory. Open to advanced sophomores or upper level students with permission of Professor Carl Wu (wuc@jhu.edu)
