BIO 211 - Genetics

4.00 credits.
An integrated and comprehensive review of Mendelian and non-Mendelian principles of heredity. Heredity will be discussed on a molecular level, including chromosomal structure and replication, gene regulation, mutation and repair, as well as modern genetics topics, such as epigenetic regulation and genetically modified organisms. Laboratory work includes demonstration of genetic principles through hands-on activities like Drosophila crosses and molecular genotyping of dihybrid crosses. Students will acquire foundational molecular biology techniques. *Prerequisite(s): An average grade of C- or better in BIO 111  and BIO 112 . *Corequisite(s): BIO 211L. Hours: lecture 3, laboratory 3. Fall semester.
