This course is open to students concentrating in the natural sciences or intending to apply for graduate or professional study in basic or applied biology. This introduction to genetics includes the following sections: gene transmission in eukaryotes and prokaryotes, linkage and recombination, gene expression, mutation and recombination, DNA and chromosomes, molecular genetic analysis, genomics, gene regulation, developmental genetics, and population genetics. There are six hours of lecture each week and two discussion sections of one-and-a-half hours each, directed by Graduate Student Instructors. The discussion sections introduce relevant new material, expand on and review lecture material, and discuss problem assignments. Grading is based on three exams covering lectures, discussions, reading assignments; exams include problems that test applications of basic concepts and genetic techniques. A practice problem set is available and is covered in discussion sections.
