At the Bench: Genetics & Genomics
PREREQUISITE: BIOL-UA.0021 AND BIOL-UA.0022 AND BIOL-UA.0030.
Covers genetic principles by means of a project-based laboratory. Students characterize mutants genetically and phenotypically. Analyses of dominance, linkage, recombination, dosage effects, and complementation are performed in the first part of the course. The second part of the course addresses genetic approaches made possible by the availability of complete genome sequences (genomics).Special note: Although the class is held at the listed hours (as described in the course registration bulletin), and attendance at the start of each class session is mandatory, the biological nature of the work may require some laboratory time outside the scheduled laboratory session.
