Intro to Organic Chemistry

Genomics is a science course in the CTY program. Its prerequisite is Genetics, which in turn has a prerequisite of Fast Paced High School Biology. It is good as a primer (no pun intended) on laboratory sequencing techniques and mechanisms and other topics in genomics, including the Human Genome Project. Its course code is GNIC, and it is offered only at Baltimore Session 2.

Genomics has two field trips. One is to Professor Andrew Feinberg[1]'s laboratory in downtown Baltimore, at the JHU hospital [2], while the other is to the NHGRI/NISC in Bethesda, Maryland.

Genomics often uses a set of Dell laptops. The password to the cabinet holding the laptops may be "1337".

Materials List

The following student supplies are usually needed:

  • 1 2" binder
  • Chemical splash goggles
  • 400 sheets of college ruled paper
  • USB flash drive (at least 256 MB)
  • No textbook. A course reader will be given out and charged at a later time to parents.

More supplies (e.g. colored pencils, scientific calculator, etc.) may be needed, depending on the instructors.
