MCB*6310 Advanced Topics in Developmental and Cellular Biology [0.50]
A study of selected topics in contemporary developmental and cellular biology. Students will review recent advances in these disciplines at the molecular and cellular level, in biological systems ranging from simple eukaryotes to plants and vertebrates.
MCB*6370 Protein Structural Biology and Bioinformatics [0.50]
This course explores structural biology from three perspectives:
- the fundamental concepts in structural biology;
- the methods used to determine structures (including x-ray crystallography, NMR, electron microscopy, and computational modeling);
- the bioinformatic concepts and tools used to compare, contrast and assign biochemical function to protein structures and sequences. The course emphasizes building a conceptual and practical skill set that will be applicable to any structure related problem.
HHNS*6440 Nutrition, Gene Expression and Cell Signalling [0.50]
This course emphasizes the role nutrients play as modulators of gene expression at the molecular level. The mechanisms by which nutrients modulate gene expression through specific cell signalling cascades are examined.
BINF*6110 Genomic Methods for Bioinformatics [0.50]
This course provides an introduction to current and emerging methods used to generate genomic data analyzed in bioinformatics. This may include techniques for DNA sequencing as well as transcriptome, proteome and metabolome analysis. The objective is to develop an appreciation for the challenges of producing data.
BINF*6210 Software Tools for Biological Data Analysis and Organization [0.50]
This course will familiarize students with tools for the computational acquisition and analysis of molecular biological data. Key software for gene expression analyses, biological sequence analysis, and data acquisition and management will be presented. Laboratory exercises will guide students through application of relevant tools.
College of Business and Economics
MGMT*6200 Leadership Assessment and Development [0.50]
This course provides a conceptual overview of the management research and its functions for academic and practitioner audiences. Students will explore the purpose of research, its relationship to theory, the benefits of various epistemological approaches and the notion of research impact. Topics include research problem definition and objectives, hypothesis development, research design, ethics approval, measurement, sampling methods, analysis, interpretation of results, and report writing. This course emphasizes those techniques most frequently used in applied and field settings. These include: quasi-experimental designs, survey research, interviewing, questionnaire design, observational techniques, and other more qualitative methods.
MGMT*6300 Business Consulting [0.50]
This course provides students with an understanding of the concepts, principles, and practices for management consulting. Students will be exposed to the various components of the consulting process, consulting approaches and styles, client consultant relationships, issue and problem diagnosis, reporting of results, and professional codes of conduct and ethics. The emphasis is on techniques most frequently used in the context of both internal and external organizational roles and as a career choice.
MGMT*6400 Project Management [0.50]
This course provides students with an understanding of the concepts, principles, and practices for project management. It introduces an understanding and appreciation of the importance of managing projects, project teams, the project management systems and tools, the various components of the project management process, and professional codes of conduct and ethics. The emphasis is on the techniques most frequently used in the context of, both internal and external organizational roles of a project manager.
