NS 4900 - [Manipulating the Mouse Genome]

Fall. (Weeks 1-7) 1 credit.

Prerequisite: BIOMG 2800 , BIOMG 3300 , BIOMG 3320  or BIOMG 3330 , or NS 3200 . Next offered 2014-2015. (Offered even years) Meets during first half of semester and provides background information for VTBMS 7010 /TOX 7010  Mouse Pathology and Transgenesis, which meets during second half. Students interested in both courses must register for them separately.

P. Soloway.

Functional genomics has relied upon tools for manipulating the mouse genome.  This course explores those tools, including transgenesis, gene targeting, gene trapping, chemical mutagenesis, use of induced pluripotent stem cells, and cloning by nuclear transplant. Also discussed are use of recombinant inbred mice and genome-wide association studies for complex trait analysis.

Outcome 1: Upon completing this course, students will be able to design strategies using these methods to address practical problems in experimental mammalian genetics.
