Genetics and Lab
This course covers the basic concepts behind our understanding of genes from both the classical genetic and modern molecular viewpoints. Mendelism and chromosomal theory will be reviewed, as well as the complex molecular mechanisms of gene expression and its control. Evolutionary genetics and populations genetics will also be included, as well as an introduction to the powerful technology of genetic engineering. Lab experiments will be involved in the course. Prerequisite: CHEM 160.
