BIOL 202 - Genetics

Uses the study of genetics to explore the collaborative process of scientific research, the critical reading of primary literature, the design and implementation of experimental studies, quantitative skills, and the interpretation and communication of research results. Like in all 200-level courses, students focus on the “process” of exploring biology. Provides students with a firm foundation in classical, quantitative and molecular genetics and covers topics in population genetics. Emphasis is on understanding how organisms encode, regulate, and inherit their genomes; current genetic applications; and the social and ethical issues that result from these technologies.
