BACKGROUND Arabidopsis thaliana is the model species of current plant genomic research with a genome size of 125 Mb and approximately 28,000 genes. The function of half of these genes is currently unknown. The purpose of this study is to infer gene function in Arabidopsis using machine-learning algorithms applied to large-scale gene expression data sets,… (More)

TIP: Read this syllabus carefully and refer to it often. It offers a " road map " to this course, explaining grading policies, providing weekly reading assignments, and alerting you to in-class activities and lectures requiring advanced preparation. Adjustments to the lecture schedule, however, may occur at my discretion and will be announced in class.
Our job is to harmonize the increasing kit of scientific tools and the increasing recklessness in using them with the shrinking biotas to which they are applied. In the nature of things we are mediators and moderators, and unless we can help rewrite the objectives of science we are pre-destined to failure. Conservation in the old sense, of this or that… (More)
