    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is definitely a core course for all biology students. If this class isn't taken, the rest of the classes following will not be as fulfilling, or will not make much sense. The concepts in this course, such as Mendelian inheritance, crossing over, etc. will greatly aid students in other courses like BIO341, and other genetic-like courses. It is a tough class, but it can be done!

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much from this course! I learned how genes cross over when offspring are being produced, I learned how to track genes on a chromosome, and much more. Some of the techniques seem moot, but they are very important, especially in today's scientific world where mostly genetics are studied. You jump right into the course without any hesitation and the going gets tough.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard. Study often. This course has abstract ideas that are hard to wrap around. Ask the teacher for help, ask often, and don't be afraid to stop them after class to ask for help. Draw big pictures of the diagrams and label each step. That really helped for me. Use color coding when labeling, and make sure that you can explain the ideas to someone else. That really helps to see if you really understand them.
