Unformatted text preview: 1 Life Science 4: Introduction to Genetics Department of Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology University of California, Los Angeles • Masters in Molecular, Cell & Developmental Biology • Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology • Ph.D. in Molecular, Cell & Developmental Biology • Drosophila Genetics to cell death regulation Cell Death in the eye • Entered UCLA as a freshman in 1994-1995 UCLA Timeline 2 Syllabus Info Course Objective: In this course, we cover a variety of topics relevant to the study of genetics, ranging from classical to nontraditional Mendelian genetics, from bacterial and viral genetics to human genetics, and includes studies on molecular techniques and their applications. Textbook Principles of Genetics Fourth Edition Snustad and Simmons • Lecture covers all of the primary course material. It should focus your reading and studying. Exams will cover both the readings and lecture. • Lectures will be posted on the web via the Blackboard website: www.lsic.ucla.edu • Lectures will also be Podcasted on the web: http://www.oid.ucla.edu/webcasts/courses • If I can’t post it on time (10pm the night before lecture), copies of lecture slides will be handed out during class.
