BIOMI 4850 - Bacterial Genetics


     
Fall. 2-3 credits, variable. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: BIOMG 2800 . Recommended prerequisite: BIOMI 2900  and BIOMG 3300 , BIOMG 3310 , BIOMG 3320 , BIOMG 3330 , or BIOMG 3350 . Optional 1 credit for registered students with permission of instructor to review literature.

J.E. Peters.

Students gain a detailed understanding of how bacteria maintain and pass on genetic information with a strong focus on the bacterium Escherichia coli. They discover the processes by which bacteria evolve through different mutations and the exchange of genetic information. The course explores how genes are regulated efficiently through negative and positive regulation and by global regulatory mechanisms. Upon completion of the course students should understand the tools used to manipulate bacterial genomes for the understanding of bacteria and other living organisms.
