BIOMG 2801 - Laboratory in Genetics and Genomics

Fall, Spring, Summer. 2 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite or corequisite: BIOMG 2800 . Recommended prerequisite: BIOG 1500 .  If you have not taken BIOMG 1350  or biochemistry (BIOMG 3300 , BIOMG 3320 , BIOMG 3330 , or BIOMG 3350 ) previously, it is recommended that you take BIOMG 2800  as a prerequisite for BIOMG 2801.  Not open to: freshmen in the fall semester. Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.

K. Blake-Hodek, M. Goldberg.

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

Outcome 1: Think analytically and creatively about the applications of basic principles of inheritance and molecular genetics to interpretations of naturally occurring and experimental biological phenomena.

Outcome 2: Gain basic laboratory skills in genetics, molecular biology, and data recording that are generally useful in biological and medical research.

Outcome 3: Become familiar with basic tools of bioinformatics, including genome databases, genome browsers, and programs facilitating the comparison of DNA and protein sequences.

Outcome 4: 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 5: Develop an understanding of real-world biological constraints on the design and execution of experiments involving live organisms.

Outcome 6: Synthesize an integrated view of inheritance extending from nucleotide sequences through gene expression and chromosome mechanics.
