BIOL 218 - Genetics and Disease


This course focuses on the genetic basis of human disease. Many important disorders are primarily of genetic origin, whereas others reflect the complex interplay between our genes and the environment. The Human Genome Project has provided a wide range of new tools that allow us to understand the genetic underpinnings of both kinds of disease. The course uses a mixed format, with both lecture and discussion of primary literature; students will also pick a human disorder/disease and present a literature review of it in the form of an essay and a poster presentation.

Prerequisites: BIOL 118 .

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered periodically
