2020 Courses

  • Summer Session 2020 courses will be added throughout the winter.

Course description

General introduction to the fundamental principles of genetics in eukaryotes and bacteria. Topics include gene transmission, linkage, recombination, structure, mutations, and manipulation, as well as analysis of genomes in individuals and populations.

Outcome 1: Think analytically and creatively about the applications of basic principles of inheritance and molecular genetics to interpretations of naturally occurring and experimental biological phenomena.

Outcome 2: Gain basic laboratory skills in genetics, molecular biology, and data recording that are generally useful in biological and medical research.

Outcome 3: Become familiar with basic tools of bioinformatics, including genome databases, genome browsers, and programs facilitating the comparison of DNA and protein sequences.

Outcome 4: Develop an understanding of how the scientific method works and how analysis of raw experimental and control data is the foundation for scientific conclusions.

Outcome 5: Develop an understanding of real-world biological constraints on the design and execution of experiments involving live organisms.

Outcome 6: Synthesize an integrated view of inheritance extending from nucleotide sequences through gene expression and chromosome mechanics.

Not open to: freshmen in the fall semester. Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.
