BS 211 - Molecular Genetics
This course focuses on the steps required to synthesize proteins from genes, the regulation of these steps as well as the manipulation and analysis of genes. Topics discussed include: a) Mendelian genetics; b) chromatin structure, DNA replication, repair and recombination; c) the control of gene expression at various levels; d) Recombinant DNA techniques; e) Proteonomics and Genomics techniques. Laboratory experiments provide hands-on instruction of techniques in DNA purification and recombinant DNA technology and the principles of Mendelian Genetics.
