Stats M254 Statistical Methods in Computational Biology Course site: http://www.stat.ucla.edu/ zhou/courses/Stats254 Lecture: WF 3–4:20pm, MS 5128. Instructor: Qing Zhou (zhou@stat.ucla.edu), OH: Wed 4:20-5:30pm, MS 8979. Prerequisite: Stats 100A (Probability) or Stats 200A (Probability) or Bioinfo 260A (Bioinfor- matics). Grading Your final grade of this course will be composed of two parts: 1. Homework assignments (60%). We will have three assignments. Some problems need computer programming. 2. Group oral presentation (40%). Each group (2-3 students) will give a 40-minute presenta- tion on a recent research paper. Topics Introduction to statistical and computational methods in computational biology and bioinfor- matics. The topics are grouped into four chapters: 1. Introduction and Data: molecular biology of gene regulation, typical data.
