BIOL 330 - Genetic Analysis

FC NSMA
4 credits
This course will provide students with an appreciation for, and understanding of, the field of genetics, from its earliest inception to recent advances.  While the tools of genetic analysis have changed dramatically in the last century, the study of genetics is unified by the goal of understanding how genes and genomes function and evolve, how genes inform biological functionality, and how gene-based technology can be harnessed to improve society.  Human genetics is emphasized but a variety of vertebrate, invertebrate, and microbial systems will be included.  Social implications of genetic technologies in medicine and other areas will be discussed.
