BIOINF 702

: Comparative Bioinformatics
2020 Semester One (1203)
Much knowledge of biological systems is acquired by making comparisons with known systems. Several computational methods, including Markov models, HMMs and dynamic programming can be used in making these comparisons. Technical aspects of these methods and their application to biological problems will be discussed. A sound understanding of BIOSCI 359 or BIOINF 301 or equivalent is assumed. Students lacking this background must take BIOINF 701 as a corequisite.

BIOSCI 100G

: Antarctica: The Frozen Continent
2023 Semester Two (1235)
A general introduction to Antarctica and its environs including the Southern Ocean and the sub-Antarctic islands. Emphasis will be placed on the evolution of Antarctica and how resident plants, animals and micro-organisms have adapted to cope with the extreme environment. Specific topics to be addressed include: the history of Antarctic exploration and its impact on the development of Antarctic science, Antarctic ecosystems, Antarctica as a wilderness region, and the impact of humans including the exploitation of resources and the effects of pollution. This course is suitable for students with both science and non-science backgrounds.

BIOSCI 108

: Biodiversity: Patterns of Life
2020 Semester One (1203)
Knowledge of biodiversity is fundamental to understanding our world. Students will become familiar with biological diversity and whakapapa beginning with viruses and leading through to microbes, plants, fungi and animals. Defining characteristics of major organismal groupings will be highlighted so as to provide students with an overview of the diversity of life on Earth, and the critical role that maintaining biodiversity has for kaitiakitanga and the future.

BIOSCI 220

: Quantitative Biology
2020 Semester Two (1205)
Almost every biological discipline will require computational and analytical skills beyond using point-and-click software to enable the processing of biological data into biological information. Students will learn fundamentals of experimental design, data management, and data visualisation. Additionally, students will gain the skills required to critically analyse and interpret biological experiments, understanding how statistics can be both used and misused in the scientific literature. Recommended preparation: STATS 101

BIOSCI 335

: Ecological Physiology
2020 Semester Two (1205)
Focuses on the strategies used by animals to cope with physical and biological challenges in the environment. Accordingly, we work at the level of the individual and the interface between physiological, biochemical or molecular approaches on the one hand, and ecology on the other. The adaptive strategies employed by a range of species, with an emphasis on aquatic organisms, in response to physical factors such as temperature, oxygen and food availability, are considered. Energetics and nutrition are emphasised. The course aims to meet the needs of students with ecological interests wishing to recognise the experimental approach to solving problems in environmental biology. The practical work is project oriented rather than laboratory based.
