Genetics: From Mendel to the Human Genome Project
MB&B 105
Spring 2016 not offered

This course, intended for nonscience majors, will provide an introduction to the science of genetics. A review of classic experiments will serve as a foundation for a more focused study of selected current topics, such as gene therapy, genetically modified plants and animals, the genetics of viruses and cancer, and the implications of knowing the sequence of the human genome. For each topic we will strive to understand the basic science of the field, consider the potential applications of recent findings, and discuss ethical issues raised by genetic technology.
