BIOMG 2801 - Laboratory in Genetics and Genomics

Fall, spring, summer. 2 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite or corequisite: BIOMG 2800 ; BIOG 1500  recommended. Not open to: freshmen in the fall semester. Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.

K. Blake, M. Goldberg.

General introduction to laboratory experimental genetics in eukaryotes and bacteria.  Topics include gene transmission, linkage, recombination, structure, mutations, and manipulation.

Outcome 1: Apply quantitative reasoning, basic probability/statistics and experimental controls to accomplish the goals of the laboratory projects on Mendelian chromosome mapping and microbial genetics.

Outcome 2: 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 3: Develop an understanding of real-world biological constraints on the design and execution of experiments involving live organisms.
