This course covers transmission genetics, methods of genetic and genome analysis in model systems and humans, as well as transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms of gene regulation. Lectures cover both classical achievements and recent advances in these fields, with readings based chiefly in the primary literature. Grades are based on exams and problem sets. A passing grade on an entrance exam covering basic concepts in Genetics serves as a prerequisite for registration in this class. You should review the CD-Rom/Booklet entitled interactive Genetics, which is on reserve at the campus libraries. Alternatively you may borrow the booklet from the Program Office or purchase it (ISBN 0-7380-1546-6) for $16.00 from Hayden-McNeil Publishing.
