BIOL 311 - Principles of Genetics
Principles of Genetics
Gene function is examined at the molecular level, including thearrangement and function of regulatory and coding sequences.The chromosomal and molecular basis for transmission of traitsis studied through inheritance patterns, recombination, linkage,genetic and physical maps. Gene mutation and chromosomalabnormalities will be covered to understand genetic diseases such as cancer. Genome sequencing, genetic engineering, microarray analysis, along with the use of model organisms in laboratory, will illustrate modern experimental techniques.
