What do the students think about genomics?
- "My friends and family get annoyed with
me trying to explain it to them, but I feel like the things I've learned are
so revolutionary, I want to share my newfound knowledge."
- "It was also comforting to learn how all
of biology could and should be connected, as with other areas of study such
as mathematics, chemistry, and physics."
- "I've never been as interested in the reading
and as motivated to continue learning as I have been this semester in Genomics....I
feel like the logical reasoning skills that I've developed can be applied
to other areas of life as well."
- "I never imagined that I would view biology
(and science in general) in such a larger context.....I feel as if I've put
on a new pair of glasses and can see things more clearly......I am coming
across more things that I've never seen before or that I don't understand.
However, I am more aware of ways and methods of finding the answers."
- "I wish I could live to be 200 years old
and study biology with degrees in physics, chemistry, biology, computer science
and mathematics.....The course has also reinforced the idea that diseases
and pathways (signaling and metabolic) are not as simple as they first appear."
