MathArt and Science Course CollegeNOW! Course
Professors Dr. Brass and Dr. Gosser, TA: Sam Kim
This course a) introduces mathematical analysis of classical examples of visual art, such as gothic architecture, op art, tilings, etc. with a focus on geometric shapes, symmetry elements, coordinates, scaling, and self-similar transformation; b) uses two graphics systems, the PovRay raytracer and the PostScript language, to introduce basic computer programming concepts like variables, subroutines, loops and conditional statements, etc; c) Introduces bioinformatics databases such as protein data bank and visualization tools.
- In collaboration with Macaulay Honors College Summer Academy to offer a 6-week Summer Bioinformatics workshop from beginning of July to the middle of August.
This workshop includes morning session (Genomics and Structural Bioinformatics) and an afternoon session (Computational Skills in Bioinformatics). The afternoon class is divided into two sections:
This workshop also provides a series of Prime Time Lectures given by distinguished scientists, professors, and artists from universities and research institutes in the New York area.
- Students in Section A will learn statistics, genome sequencing, and annotation.
- Students in Section B will learn math, art, programming, and molecular graphics.

. The main goal of this special interest group is to conduct a research oriented project - Gene Annotation. This project is in collaboration with Washington University at St. Louis and the results will be authenticated and submitted to the world-wide bioinformatics database (NCBI
). This can lead to a paper to be published in a peer-reviewed journal for the students involved.
Materials for this course can be found at the CCNY GEP Course Materials
page. For syllabus, go to "Genomics Club Activities".
