This class was tough.
This is a required course for the biology major. It is very difficult and you have to put a LOT of time in, but if you are willing to do so, you will learn a lot! Dr. Hillwig will prepare you very well for the work you will have to do in any kind of graduate school so while it may seem hard at the time, I promise you'll appreciate it.
This is a basic genetics course, so you get an intro into many of the inner workings of the cell and reproduction, inheritance, pedigree analysis, sex chromosomes, gene mapping and genomes.

Advice for students:
Talk to Dr. Hillwig with any questions and make sure you understand the material thoroughly. Not just basic vocabulary, but really how to explain different concepts. Get a study partner and try to explain big concepts back to each other.
