BIO 2040 - Genetics


Credits: 4
This course examines the principles, mechanisms and methodologies of classical and molecular genetics. It begins with an introduction to the chemical nature of heredity material. It investigates mechanisms of DNA replication, cell division, protein synthesis and control of gene expression. Emphasis is placed on identifying differences in prokaryotic and eukaryotic molecular pathways. Inheritance is examined using classical principles established by Gregor Mendel and is discussed in the context of modern theories of chromosomal molecular genetics. Inheritance patterns and allelic frequencies are studied at both the familial and population levels. Students will investigate and perform molecular techniques and bioinformatics based analyses currently utilized in biotechnology-based professions. 
Lecture hours/Lab hours: 3 hours lecture; 3 hours lab
Prerequisites: A minimum grade of C in the following courses: BIO 1040  or BIO 1140 ; and a college level chemistry course.
