(required for all BIO courses beginning Fall 2013)COURSE OBJECTIVES / STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMESTo provide students with a thorough background in the theoretical aspects of both classical and contemporary genetics, and hands on experience with some of the most widely used techniques in modern genetics research. To help students develop their analytical skills, and provide experience with the scientific style of writing and presenting research results. By the end of the semester, the successful student will have attained the following:Knowledge/understanding of the principles of genetics.Understanding of the mechanisms of heredity, including transmission of simple and complex traits, and how to predict the outcomes of specific crosses.Knowledge of the types of gene interactions that can affect the expression of specific genes.Understanding of the basics of Molecular Genetics, including DNA structure, replication and gene expression.The use of statistics in predicting the outcomes of crosses, and in determining whether the outcomes were likely influenced by factors other than random chance.Knowledge of the factors that affect gene distribution in populations.Understanding and use of techniques/equipment that are standard components of genetic research labs.
