BIO 4347 - Molecular Genetics
Credits: 3 hrs.
This course covers the latest concepts in molecular biology which entail (i) the transfer and expression of genetic data via transcription and translation, (ii) gene interactions, (iii) molecular mutagens, (iv) applications of recombinant DNA technology and (v) molecular evolution. Any bioethical concerns related to each concept will be discussed. The course emphasis is on the molecular level of gene structure and function, gene replication and repair and the regulation and expression of genetic information. The molecular biology of eukaryotic cells and, to a lesser degree, prokaryotic cells will be investigated. Biotechnology majors must also take the accompanying laboratory (BIO 4147).
