Allorganisms transmit their genes and inherited traits to offspring, resulting in the pattern ofgenetic inheritance that connects all life forms through time. With the (re)discovery ofMendelian inheritance and the discovery of the laws of molecular biology in the 20th century,our understanding of the mechanisms by which organisms organize, express, and passgenes to offspring has grown spectacularly. In this course, we will examine different areas ofgenetics. Molecular Genetics: the central dogma of molecular genetics; molecular structure1
of DNA, RNA, and Proteins; molecular processes-replication, transcription, and translation;DNA recombination and repair, gene function, gene regulation, Microbial genetics:transformation, conjugation, and transduction; Transmission Genetics: Mendelian laws ofheredity and extension and modification of Mendelian laws; techniques of identifying genesof interest and of mapping those genes to chromosomes, chromosome structure; andgenetics of some human diseases. We will also explore various applications of genetictechnologies, which impact medicine, agriculture, forensics, and basic research in biology,
