BIO 325 Genetics Fall 2013   TTH 7:30-9 Inder Saxena $610.00


In genetics, our focus in the past has been molecule by molecule, base by base, protein by protein. With the genomic explosion, however, we now examine the forest and the trees. In this course, you will learn the basics of genes and inheritance, but you will also gain a strong understanding of genetic biotechnologies and the new wave of genomics research. The course will provide you with a solid understanding of the structure and function of genes and chromosomes, including regulation, arrangement, and molecular interactions. Sections on genetic models for research and molecular evolution will also be covered.

BIO 325, Genetics, is a prerequisite for all other upper-division biology courses.

Students must have the approval of the University Extension advisor to enroll in this course. See more information about Course Approvals.
