    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Classical Genetics with Dr. Muth because it opens student's eyes to the visibility of genetics in everyday organisms in tandem with thorough instruction of the course. The course was well executed and by the end I felt as though I had acquired a deep understanding of the topic that would stick with me.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the lab days. Most of the time students would enter the lab and work with flies or some other organism in which genetic changes were tangible and demonstrative of what had been lectured. One of the most exciting labs was one that involved two plants that were genetically identical. The twin plants were allowed to grow in different environments, and with careful logging and observation the plants were revealed to have had different growth patterns, despite original genetic makeup, by the end of the course. This was a visible and effective way to observe epigenetics, or how environment affects genetics, plays out in real organisms. Overall, the course did a good job at not only making sure students understood concepts in Mendelian and Non-Mendelian genetics, but that students also had the opportunity to observe genetics in action.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise any student taking classical genetics to find someone else in their class with whom they feel comfortable working, and treat them respectfully in order to foster a valuable working relationship. For researchers, every scientist will come to a place one day when they need the help from an expert in their field. In this course, that was my lab partner, and Classical Genetics taught me how to work effectively and efficiently in a lab while enjoying the company of a fellow learner.
