PCB 2061  Applied Genetics credits: 2

This course introduces the concepts and mechanisms associated with the transmission of heritable information including Mendelian genetic analysis, modern molecular genetic analysis and regulation of gene expression. The aim of this course is to provide students with a foundation for understanding the current genetic advances in regards to their application to current methods in biotechnology. Quantitative genetic analyses, genomics, and the genetic basis of disease will be explored.

Prerequisite: (BSC 2010 and BSC 2010L or BSC 2010CH with a minimum grade of C)
