BIOMG 2800 - Lectures in Genetics and Genomics

(PBS-AS, BIO-AS)      
Fall, Spring, Summer (weeks 1-8). 3 credits. Student option grading.

Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will not receive credit for both BIOMG 2800 and NTRES 2830 .
Prerequisite: one college-level introductory biology course or equivalent, or permission of the instructor. Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.

D. Barbash, K. Blake-Hodek, M. Goldberg, S. Lee, E. Richards.

General introduction to the fundamental principles of genetics in eukaryotes and bacteria. Topics include: gene transmission, linkage, recombination, structure, mutations, and manipulation, as well as analysis of genomes in individuals and populations.

Outcome 1: Describe basic principles of inheritance, gene expression, and genomic structure in the context of biological evolution.

Outcome 2: Think analytically and creatively about the applications of basic principles of inheritance and gene expression to interpretations of naturally occurring and experimental biological phenomena.

Outcome 3: Know how genetics provides an experimental approach that can be used to investigate almost any aspect of biology.

Outcome 4: Develop an appreciation that genetics is important to future progress in medical sciences.

Outcome 5: Develop problem solving skills employing logical thought.
