MCB C148: Microbial Genomics and Genetics (Spring 2011, UC Berkeley). Instructors: Daniel Barsky, N. Louise Glass. This course emphasizes bacterial and archaeal genetics and comparative genomics.

Genetics and genomic methods used to dissect metabolic and development processes in bacteria, archaea, and selected microbial eukaryotes. Genetic mechanisms integrated with genomic information to address integration and diversity of microbial processes. Introduction to the use of computational tools for a comparative analysis of microbial genomes and determining relationships among bacteria, archaea, and microbial eukaryotes. Also listed as Plant and Microbial Biology C148.
