Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was challenging in a good way. It is not a typical memorization class which is what makes it interesting. It truly gave me a good understanding of genetics and it was one of my favorite classes. Doing well on the exams is not too hard if you understand the material and do many example problems, especially the homework problems.
The highlights of this course included learning about all of the genetic diseases and learning how far genomics has come. I learned everything from how to predict if a person will have a certain disease to how to detect where the disease may be coming from.

Advice for students:
Do a lot of example problems over and over again. Take advantage of the extra credit quizzes by never missing any points. Make sure to do and understand every single assignment. Also, time runs out quicker than normal when taking genetics exams so be careful and make sure you don't take too long solving a problem.
