ANSC 3921 - Mechanisms of Animal Growth and Development Lab


     
Spring. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: ANSC 1100  or equivalent introductory physiology courses. Corequisite: ANSC 3920 .

Q. Long.

A complementary course to ANSC 3920  (Mechanisms of Animal Growth and Development). This laboratory course provides experience in animal genotyping, generation and expression of transgenes, hormone-stimulated cell growth, and metabolism of cells and the whole animal. Techniques used in this course include genomic DNA isolation, PCR and electrophoresis, vectors, DNA ligation and transformation, gene expression, immunohistochemistry, and glucose and insulin tolerance tests.

Outcome 1: Guidelines and specific approaches for identifying genetically modified animals.

Outcome 2: Molecular cloning and expression of genes in low (bacteria and Yeast) and mammalian systems.

Outcome 3: Immunohistochemical analyses of endogenous and recombinant proteins.

Outcome 4: Principles and specific methods for assessing body glucose homeostasis and metabolism.
