Waitlist Capacity:
Advisory Prerequisites:
CMB senior concentrators or Graduate standing. Prerequisites will be set by the instructor as appropriate for each section.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May be repeated for a maximum of 6 credit(s).
Primary Instructor:

The prerequisites for this course are: BIOLOGY 305, and MCDB 310 or BIOLCHEM 415.

DNA replication and DNA repair are fundamental cellular processes that are conserved in all domains of life. This course will examine bacterial genes across many species that are required for genome maintenance including: DNA replication initiation, DNA elongation and a broad range of DNA repair pathways. This course will also investigate modern genomic techniques and students will learn bioinformatics approaches to understanding potential gene functions. The course format will be lectures and discussions. Most of the reading material for this course will be from the primary scientific literature. This course is most appropriate for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students.
