QBS 177 Algorithms for Data Science

 This course provides an introduction to algorithms used in data science with applications to biomedical science. The goal of this course is to present an overview of many of the approaches used for big data focusing on analytical methods.  The course assumes that students have some knowledge of R. Students will be provided with 2 large databases. Lectures on data reduction, classification, and optimization will request students complete homework for these datasets.  In addition, students will form teams at the beginning of the term and will propose a project and complete an analysis to be presented at the end of the term.  All grades will be derived from the homework and project summaries.
