BIOL 311 - Principles of Genetics
Principles of Genetics
The course addresses the chromosomal and molecular basis for the transmission and function of genes through various topics: Patterns of inheritance, including Mendelian genetics, segregation and recombination, sex linkage and human genetics; the structure and function of the genetic material including complementation and regulation of gene expression; the construction of genetic and physical maps of genes; gene and chromosome mutation; molecular genetics and modern DNA technologies including genome sequencing and genetic engineering. Many selected organisms are used in the laboratory to illustrate relevant genetic principles.
