1 GENERAL GENETICS - BIOLOGY 340 Fall Quarter 2009 LECTURES : TTH 1:30-2:45 PM - BIOS 244 CLASS # 14312 – 01 LABS : T 3:00-5:30 PM – BIOS 209 & 236 CLASS # 14313 – 02 or TH 3:00-5:30 PM – BIOS 209 & 236 CLASS # 14314 – 03 1. COURSE DESCRIPTION : This course will focus on the investigation of forms of inherited variation and the nature of the underlying genetic basis of such characteristics. The course emphasizes an experimental, inquiry-based approach with discussion of research experiments that have contributed to our knowledge of genetics. We will cover as many chapters as time permits. Items labeled REVIEW (except for the chi square test) are material that is covered in BIOL 100B in detail so you are EXPECTED to have been introduced already to this material and have some degree of understanding. Be prepared to ask questions if there are things you do not understand. Items (a) through (g) also relate to experiments in lab. This 4-unit course fulfills one of the five required core courses for Biology majors. 2. LECTURE TOPICS : CHAPTER NUMBER : a. REVIEW: Monohybrid Crosses: Terminology, Allele Notation, Gametes, Mendelian Ratios 1-4 b. REVIEW: Monohybrid Crosses: Chi Square Test, Problems 1-4 c.
