BIOL 118 - Genetics

Investigates the nature of genes and genomes in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. A combination of approaches from classical Mendelian and modern Molecular Genetics are explored in order to examine the inheritance of both nuclear and extranuclear genes, how genes are expressed and regulated, mutation and DNA repair, and the nature of chromosome-level mutation. Also includes an integrated laboratory that highlights many aspects of the lectures and involves a bioinformatic annotation project using a novel genome.

Prerequisites: BIOL 101  or BIOL 103 , and BIOL 102 .

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered every year.
