Brooker, McGraw Hill Homepage: http://courses.utexas.edu (Access requires you to login with your EID and Password and you cannot login unless you are registered in the course. ) Course Description: Genetics is the study of heredity. Within that broad framework, we will cover structure and replication of the genetic material, molecular properties and regulation of genes, genetic technologies, genomics, medical genetics and cancer, patterns of inheritance, linkage and genetic mapping, and variations in chromosome structure and number. Course Objectives: The primary objective of this course is to help you develop a deeper understanding of genetics as you transition from introductory biology to other upper-division biology courses. A firm foundation in the principles of molecular and classical genetics is the base upon which you will build a comprehensive understanding of whatever field of biology you choose to follow in the future. Whether your goal is to become a heath care professional or a professional biologist, it is imperative that you have a solid understanding of the basic properties that underlie the existence of all living things. Course Format: This course consists of two types of instruction: lectures that will present the course material in what is hopefully an interesting and helpful-for-learning manner, and discussion sessions that will allow you to refine your understanding of the material via interaction with your TA and fellow students. A Learning Aid: To enhance your learning, I will provide notes for each lecture. These notes will not contain every bit of information that will be covered in the lectures, but they will allow you to follow along with me as I cover the material without the need of taking copious notes yourself. In this way, your attention can be directed to what is being covered in the lecture so that hopefully the information enters your ears and goes to your brain rather than entering your ears and pouring out on your notebook. Notes will be posted on the class website.
