This course will emphasize current developments and techniques in the study of inheritance including extensions and applications of transmission, population, and molecular genetics. Laboratory experiences will include Mendelian crosses of model organisms, computer simulations via software and Internet of traditional and population genetics, and an introduction to cell-molecular genetics techniques including micropipetting, sterile bacterial culture, and visualization and mapping of DNA via gel electrophoresis. Thought processes and problem solving will be emphasized.
Concurrent enrollment in BIO 302 required.
