BSB 230 - General Genetics

Credits: 4


Prerequisite: BSB 101 , BSB 102  (w/labs) or BSB 141 , BSB 142  

An introduction to the study of the transmission and expression of genetic information. Studying molecular genetics (replication, mutation, repair, and expression of genetic material) will provide the basis of understanding of Mendelian, cellular, and population genetics. Material will include discussion of historical experiments important to the development of the field and of ethical issues raised by modern genetic technologies. This course will prepare students for more advanced topics, e.g. BSB 332  Cellular and Molecular Biology, BSB 452  Immunology, and BSB 467 /PSC 467  Biochemistry.
