Molecular Biology and Genetics
- Lecture/Discussion: 3
Concepts and principles of transmission (Mendelian) genetics and population genetics, using analysis and interpretation of genetic examples and situations to illustrate how genes are inherited, the resultant phenotypes and the effects of gene interactions. The underlying principles of genetics will be extended to a discussion of the flow of genetic information in the cell. Topics will include the molecular biology of DNA replication, transcription and translation.
