Supplemental reading materials on biology
If you need basic knowledge on cell biology, microarray technology and microarray data analysis, the following links will be useful.
H. Lodish, et al., Molecular Cell Biology (Bad news: It seems that NCBI has removed the online full-text access. It is still searchable, though.)
Additional readings including chapters from other textbooks, journal papers, and review articles will be handed out in class or posted below. Since this is a graduate course intended to accommodate students with diverse backgrounds in computer science and biology, I expect you to be resourceful about finding the reading materials that are most appropriate for you. If there is a term or concept you donít understand or want to understand better, try searching on Google, going to the library to get a reference book, or looking up a review article in Pubmed. I will do my best to provide you with starting points and key terms/concepts that will allow you to look things up quickly.
