BIOLOGY 3166 GENETICS Fall 2017 Prerequisites: BIOL3111 and CHEM1252/1252L (both with a minimum grade of C). This course is an introduction to general genetics and can be separated into three sections: transmission/Mendelian genetics, molecular genetics, and population genetics. Material discussed in class will originate mostly, but not exclusively, from the text. Because this class will introduce many new facts and biological concepts, don’t be surprised if you aren’t immediately able to absorb everything in class when initially presented. Just review the previous class material before the next class. This if one of multiple suggestions contained in the “What to do to succeed” document, available on Canvas, which, if followed, will improve course performance. Professor : Todd Steck, Ph.D. Office: Woodward 390C Office Hours: by appointment Contact information: [email protected] Class Times : T, Th 11:00 - 12:15, CHHS 281 Text : Genetics Essentials: Concepts and Connections , by Benjamin Pierce, 3 rd Ed., 2015, MacMillan Note: There are a few differences between the 2 nd and 3 rd editions of this text, including in some assigned problems. I have not identified all of those differences, but think that if you have access to a 3 rd edition to use for comparison, the 2 nd edition will likely suffice. Exams (dates are tentative and subject to change): Exam 1 9/12 Exam 2 10/12 Exam 3 11/9 Exam 4 12/5 Final Exam (cumulative) 12/12 (T), 11:00-1:35 Exam type : multiple choice.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
