BIOL 410 - Genetic Analysis II

Units: 3
A continuation of BIOL 310. Modern molecular and genetic techniques used to study the development of genetic model organisms (i.e. yeast, worms and flies). Topics include cell-cell communication, asymmetric cell division and stem cell biology among others.

Prerequisites: BIOL 310.
Possible Instructional Methods: Entirely On-ground.
Grading: A-F or CR/NC (student choice).
Course Typically Offered: Spring ONLY

Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
  1. Explain forward and reverse genetic approaches currently used to identify genes in prominent model organisms;
  2. Describe how a gene functions and/or is regulated by evaluating a genetic analysis of single mutants (both loss- and gain-of-function alleles);
  3. Build and organize molecular pathways using a genetic analysis of double mutant combinations;
  4. Build and organize molecular pathways using a combined molecular, biochemical and genetic approach. Evaluate molecular genetic techniques that are currently used to map, amplify and manipulate a gene of interest in vivo and in vitro;
  5. Explain how human disease models can be created by transgenesis of genetic model organisms;
  6. Explain the role of genetic technologies in industries related to biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.
