More Information

Section Description

The goals of this course are to develop a deep understanding of the major concepts in genetics, learn how to apply these concepts to solve problems, and to develop a capacity to think critically about real-world issues related to genetics.

Section Expectation

This course is a combined lecture/discussion in a small classroom. Upon the successful completion of this course, students will be able to… 1. Explain foundational concepts in transmission and molecular genetics using correct terminology (knowledge). 2. Draw inferences from biological datasets to develop conclusions (skill). 3. Evaluate case studies and problem sets using a genetic and quantitative approach (skill). 4. Make connections between the molecular level of biological organization and the whole organism (skill). 5. Evaluate and articulate the contribution of genetics to society (value).

Evaluation

Concept tests and problem sets are graded in-class activities. Mastering Genetics homework will be due daily (MTW) by midnight. Weekly exams will be given during lecture. Final exam (cumulative) on the final day of classes.
