S181: Neurodegeneration: Concept & Research in Splash Spring 2016 (Feb. 27, 2016)
Neurodegeneration is a molecular mechanism in many species in the planet. For humans, it leads to diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and for some individuals, hereditary illnesses like Huntington’s disease and Lou Gherig’s disease. In this course, you’ll learn about the concept of neurodegeneration at the molecular and evolutionary level, different types of research that has been conducted in trying to understand how neurodegeneration works and genetic engineering experiments that have been done to tackle neurodegeneration at various levels of organization, in-silico, hands-on techniques to experiment with at home to study neurodegeneration on your own as a budding bioinformatician and also the basics of molecular and systems biology in a nutshell.
