Human Heredity - Zoology 3123 (N) Fall 2011 CLB 203 - MWF 10:30 – 11:20 am Instructor : Dr. Meredith Hamilton Office: LSW420 Phone: 744-9685 Email: meredith.hamilton@okstate.edu OFFICE HOURS: Mon & Wed 9:30-10:30 AM; or by appointment (send me an email) TA : Dana Lee Office hours: We can meet in the lobby of the Henry Bellmon Research Center (HBRC) by appointment only (send me an email) Email: dana.lee10@okstate.edu Textbook : Human Genetics , 9th edition, Ricki Lewis Course Description : This course is designed to introduce the non-biology major to the basics of human genetics. We will examine various modes of human inheritance, explore genetic syndromes, consider the consequences of chromosomal aberrations and gene mutations as well as discuss recent technological developments in the field of genetics. Examinations (500 points) : There will be three midterm exams and a comprehensive final examination . One-half of the final will cover material presented after the third midterm exam, and the other half will be comprehensive for the entire course. Each midterm exam will be worth 100 points . Your lowest midterm exam score will be replaced with the percentage grade you earn on the final (if percentage on final > lowest exam percentage). For example – if you make 50% on Exam 1 (50 points out of possible 100) and you score 70% on the final – your point score for Exam 1 will be raised to 70 out of 100. If you miss one of the three exams, this zero will be the score you replace, thereby not penalizing you. Meaning – if you are sick – out of town – oversleep – you get to replace that test score rather than making a zero. If you miss a second midterm exam you will be given a zero on that exam. We strongly encourage you to take ALL exams whether or not you feel prepared – this way if you get sick or have an emergency you won’t miss two exams. If you know
