Course description

This course is specifically designed for students enrolled in the BAdvSc(Hons) majoring in any of the biology streams.

The discipline of Genetics has pioneered the core concepts underlying many diverse fields of biology - ranging from medicine, biochemistry and microbiology to ecology, evolution and environmental sciences. BIOL2202 Genetics integrates classical concepts of inheritance, development and variation with modern molecular advances arising from the post-genomic era. BIOL2902 Advanced Genetics builds on this core curriculum with additional advanced content delivered in the form of a deeper practical experience focusing on the generation of publishable data, enhancing understanding of fundamental genetics concepts while providing a more coherent foundation for third year biology, biochemistry and molecular biology courses.
