This course will introduce students to the ways in which humans have generated and used genetically modified organisms. An emphasis will be placed on the underlying biological knowledge that has enabled genetic manipulations. We will consider examples of microbial, plant, and animal biotechnology, including discussions of the merits and concerns surrounding human gene therapy, transgenic plants, and other topical issues. The course will consist of lectures, discussions, and student presentations on current biotechnology topics of their choice. Students will be evaluated using in-class examinations and presentations.
