Genomics: Modern Genetics, Bioinformatics, and the Human Genome Project

BIOL 210
Spring 2021
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: MB&B 210
Course Cluster and Certificates: Health Studies

Genetics has provided a foundation for modern biology. We will explore the classical genetics and go on to consider how genomics has transformed this field. This course is intended to introduce students to the fields of genetics and genomics, which encompass modern molecular genetics, bioinformatics, and the structure, function, and evolution of genomes. We will discuss important new areas of research that have emerged from the genome projects, such as epigenetics, polymorphisms, transgenics, systems biology, stem cell research, and disease mapping. Students will also discuss bioethical issues we face in this new postgenome era.
