Praxis AI Course Catalog
World renowned professor Dr. Alex Feltus from Clemson University has built this powerful computational biology journey including Python techniques to parse genomics data files, transcribe DNA files into RNA files, and translate RNA files into protein sequence files. Students will also explore the genomics of the Coronavirus. Qualifies for the BioHackers: Digital Biology digital badge.
In this Bioinformatics Journey, students will explore how computational environments such as Linux, Jupyter Notebooks, and Python impact biosciences and genomics. In addition, they will gain insights into genome data mining, structural bioinformatics, and systems biology using data-intensive hands-on labs and AI-powered collaboration. Qualifies for the BioHacker: Bioinformatics digital badge.
Bioinformatics with R
YouTube sensation, Dr. Josh Vandenbrink, leverages AI-powered curation, hands-on data-intensive compute environments, multisensory online resources, and R Studio to teach students how to use bioinformatics workflows to solve today’s toughest genomics problems. Qualifies for the BioHacker: Bioinformatics with R digital badge.
World-renown scientist Dr. Alex Feltus teaches students how to use bioinformatics workflows to solve today’s toughest genomics problems with a focus on gene expression changes between normal and cancer tissue. In addition, students will gain insights into genome data mining, cancer and normal transcriptomics, differential gene expression analysis, and biomarker discovery. Qualifies for the BioHacker: Cancer Transcriptomics digital badge.
Conservation scientist Dr. Ellie Armstrong leverages AI-powered curation, hands-on data-intensive compute environments, multisensory online resources, quizzes, and expert mentoring to teach students how to use bioinformatics workflows to analyze and assemble animal genomes with a focus on endangered species.
Generative AI Foundations
An introduction to the fundamentals of AI and the cutting-edge tech that is rapidly changing our world. Students will collaborate with each other, mentors, and Pria in an online AI Lab. In the final project, they will build their own large language model using the skills and coding expertise they developed throughout the course. Qualifies for the Foundations of AI digital badge.
Foundations of Data Science
Using R Studio, students will discover several data visualization and graphing techniques, learn how to explore and analyze data using various methods, mine Twitter for sentiment analysis, and gain practice using interactive shiny apps. Qualifies for the Foundations of Data Science digital badge.
This online, interactive journey explores the general concepts of game design from initial idea to finished concept. Students will develop and build prototype games, playtest designs, and learn to critically evaluate systems with respect to formal and dramatic elements. Together, students will develop computer games (artifacts) using suitable game engines and libraries. Qualifies for the Game Design digital badge.
