Genetics and Molecular Biology
GEN & MOL BIOL
CLASS CODE: BIO 375 CREDITS:  4 FEE:  $10.00
DIVISION: AGRICULTURAL AND LIFE SCIENCES
DEPARTMENT: BIOLOGY
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: An investigation of the transmission of heritable material in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Topics include classical genetics (patterns of inheritance, linkage and chromosome mapping), molecular biology (DNA structure and function, gene expression, biotechnology), and population genetics. (Winter, Summer, Fall)
DESCRIPTION: This course follows up on previously learned material in general biology courses. Emphasis is placed on applying the fundamentals learned to new situations. Laboratory exercises allow students to do independent work and communicate results with others, critical thinking and problem-solving techniques are emphasized.
TOPICS: Mapping genes in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, chromosome structure, sex determination, DNA replication and recombination, regulation of gene expression in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, DNA mutation and repair, cancer, quantitative genetics, recombinant DNA technology, and hominid evolution.
OBJECTIVES: To further investigate the transmission of heritable traits and to provide meaningful lab experiences in genetics.
REQUIREMENTS:
PREREQUISITES: BIO 200 or BIO 208
OTHER: $10.00 lab fee
EFFECTIVE DATE: August 2001
