Genetics

This is the final course in the four-course Biology core at F&M.  Topics will include classical genetics (Mendel's laws, gene interactions, population genetics), to molecular genetics (DNA mutation and repair, regulation of gene expression, epigenetics), to genomics, bioinformatics and applications (e.g., biotechnology, genetic testing).  The laboratory component emphasizes the use of molecular methods in genetics.
