At the Bench: Genetics and Genomics


Approaches genetic principles through a project based laboratory. Students characterize mutants genetically and phenotypically. Analyses of dominance, linkage, recombination, dosage effects, and complementation, followed by genetic approaches made possible by the availability of complete genome sequences (genomics). Special note: Although the class is held at the listed hours (as described on Albert) and attendance at the start of each class session is mandatory, the biological nature of the work may require some laboratory time outside the scheduled laboratory session.
