Syllabus, Fall 2010 Instructor: Ryan Baugh Assistant Professor Department of Biology ryan.baugh@duke.edu 4314 FFSC Course time: Wednesdays 6:00 – 8:30 Location: 4219 French Family Science Center Synopsis: One of the wonders of nature is the development of complex multi-cellular organisms from single cells. Cells become different from each other during development by expressing different genes, and transcriptional regulation is a key aspect of developmental control. Changes in transcriptional regulation can also drive evolution and cause disease. This literature-based seminar will cover transcriptional regulation during development. Classic and contemporary papers dealing with molecular mechanisms, genome-wide views and regulatory networks will be discussed. Objectives: 1) To cover topics in transcriptional control of developmental biology. 2) To familiarize students with modern genomic technologies and analysis. 3) To teach students to read scientific papers.
