BIOL - 260. Molecular Genetics

(3 hours lecture, 4 hours laboratory - optional)
3-4 credit(s)
Lecture: A review of classical genetics coupled with an introduction to molecular genetics. Topics include Mendel’s laws, linkage, complex traits, genetic analysis, biochemistry of nucleic acids, gene expression, molecular cloning, gene therapy, human genome project and other contemporary topics.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 220 , CHEM 210 . Optional laboratory: Use of the model genetic organisms, Escherichia coli, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Arabidopsis thaliana, to demonstrate the power of genetic research. Students will use techniques of classical and molecular genetics to generate and characterize mutants. Laboratory may be taken independently for 1 credit if BIOL-260 was completed previously as lecture only (3 credits) with a grade of C or better.
Attribute: (ATTR: ARTS).
