Co-requisite: concurrent enrollment in BIO 3101 Course Description BIOL3301 Classical and Molecular Genetics (3 semester hours). The phenomenon of heredity, its cytological and molecular basis; gene expression and transfer of genetic information. With major focus on bacterial and model eukaryotic systems; genetic recombination and chromosome mapping; mutations and mutagenesis; gene interactions; application of recombinant DNA techniques to genetic analysis. Learning Outcomes Upon completing this course, students will: 1. Be able to discuss basic and more advanced areas of transmission and molecular genetics. 2. Be able to apply this knowledge to real-world problem solving in transmission and molecular genetics. 3. Begin to appreciate the intimate relationship between the various sciences (e.g., genetics and biochemistry) that lead to a more complete understanding of various biological problems through reading science material and by participating in discussions Required Texts & Materials Russel, P.
