BIO 102 - NPS Human Heredity and Inherited Diseases

4.00 credits.
(Natural and Physical Science Core Course)
An overview of human heredity, providing the tools needed to make informed decisions on a variety of health-related issues with information on disease, medical technology, genetic engineering and biotechnology, and environmental factors affecting human health. As part of the laboratory, each student isolates copies of a small portion of his or her own mitochondrial DNA. Students work with international DNA databases to compare their DNA sequences to those from their classmates, from people around the world, and from ancient Neanderthal DNA, allowing them to observe evolution in a very personal way. *Corequisite(s): BIO 102L. Hours: lecture 3, laboratory 3. Spring semester, when offered.
