 “What is the calculus of innovation? The calculus of innovation is really quite simple: Knowledge drives innovation, innovation drives productivity, productivity drives economic growth.“

William Brody (born 1944), Scientist

Technology has been evolving and industries, including healthcare, experience the benefits of using modern machines and software. Robotics, information technology, and artificial intelligence contribute to the design and development of automated tools and processes that make any task easier, faster, and streamlined – with the main goal of working towards work and life improvement in general. In this course, we will learn about advancements brought about by technology in genomics research and laboratory setting that has helped researchers work efficiently.

Key Concepts Covered:

  • Advancements in PCR and sequencing
  • Use of bioinformatics in genomics research
  • Workflow automation advantages in the laboratory
  • Effective laboratory design
