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: DNA and chromosomes; gene transmission; linkage and recombination; genes and enzymes; the genetic code; mutations and variation; recombinant DNA; introduction to genomics; gene regulation; developmental, population, quantitative and evolutionary genetics.

There are three hours of lecture each week. During lecture, student response systems (clickers) will be used to monitor student feedback. Weekly discussion sections led by GSIs will review and expand on lecture material through additional problem solving. Grading is based on weekly on-line quizzes, three exams during the semester, and a final exam. All graded assignments focus primarily on new problems that test applications of basic concepts and genetic techniques. Practice problems are provided with help available in discussion sections and at the Genetics Study Center.
