BIO 384 - Genetics and Molecular Biology

Course Units: 1
(Fall; Horton) The use of both classical genetics and molecular biology as experimental tools is currently being applied to an extremely diverse array of questions in biology. This course will expose the student to many of the commonly-used techniques in the “toolkit” of the geneticist/molecular biologist. Emphasis will be on recent advances in our understanding of topics of current interest such as development, cellular response to environmental stimuli, tumor formation, human genetic disease, and apoptosis, amongst others. Laboratory will emphasize the use of modern molecular biological techniques and will involve group projects of the students’ choice. Prerequisite(s): BIO 225   and CHM 102    Corequisite(s): BIO 384L Lecture/Lab Hours One lab per week.
