    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if you are interested in a pre-medical, biology orientated, or STEM related profession. BIO 311 offer insight into the ever evolving science of genetics. During this course you will learn about the key elements that make you who you are! You will explore the fundamental elements/molecules that make up DNA, protein structure, and cells. Concepts such as the law of segregation and law of independent assortment, found in Mendelian Genetics, will explain how humans can be so similar but also have variation/uniqueness. Take this course to learn about how genes determine the structure and function of living organisms!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how genes effect protein structure and function. The Central Dogma is the bases, meaing genes are translated (mRNA) from DNA into RNA and then translated (tRNA) into protein by ribosomes. I also learned how to predict hereditary traits and mutations in progeny using equations and ratios.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the problems at ends of the chapter. They will help you learn to use formulas and ratios correctly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this because genetics is a big subject and this class goes over the basics very well. This is a good class to take even if you aren't interested in genetics. The information rolls over into many other subjects.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge on how genes are passed through populations and individuals. I was also taught about the many historical event leading up to our knowledge of genetics now. It is a fairly new science subject, and there is a lot to still be learned.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class and listen to what the instructor has to say. Its a lot easier to learn the material from lecture then it is from a book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course to take with Dr. Denver because despite the amount of information needed to learn, Dr. Denver goes over it very clearly and at a good pace. There is obviously a lot of extra work you as a student would need to put into a course like this, but coming to class prepared and staying on top of the material will definitely benefit you. Dr. Denver cares about his students and he makes sure we really understand the material before tests.

    Course highlights:

    This course not only teaches you about genetics on a molecular scale, but we learn a lot in regards to genome size and evolution too. Dr.Denver is always bringing real world findings into his lectures, and other practical uses to this knowledge such as genome sequencing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you pay attention really well in class, then you should be good to go. Dr.Denver posts his slides online, but he mentions a lot of tiny details during lecture that aren't on his slides that would be good to jot down, so make sure you are still taking notes. If you are not a student who pays close attention in class, then definitely try to come to class having read the material already.
