Courses in Biology (Division 328)

Molecular and Cellular Biology and Physiology

305. Genetics. Biol. 152 or 195 (or the equivalent). (Excl).

This course is designed for students who are concentrating in the natural sciences, or who intend to apply for graduate or professional study in basic or applied biological sciences. This introduction to genetics is divided into the following segments: DNA and chromosomes, gene transmission in eukaryotes, linkage and recombination, mutation and its consequences, gene expression and regulation, population genetics. There are six hours of lecture and two discussion sections (directed by teaching assistants) per week. The discussion sections are used to introduce relevant new material, to expand on and review the lecture material, and to discuss problem assignments. Grading is based on examinations covering the lecture material, reading assignments in the text, and new problems that test applications of basic concepts and genetic techniques. Practice problem sets designed for this course will be available and are covered in discussion sections and the Genetics Clinic, where all TA office hours are held. (Fry and Hoffman)
