Course Objectives This course aims to introduce the basic concepts in genetics, and explains the principles and mechanisms of heredity. It also provides information about genetic mapping, chromosomal changes, population genetics and quantitative genetics.
Textbook Main Textbook: Introduction to Genetic Analysis (9th Ed.) Griffiths, Wessler, Lewontin, Carroll, ISBN:978-0-7167-6887-6. Other Books: Concepts of Genetics (10th Ed.) Klug, Cummings, Pearson, ISBN: 978-0321724120. // Genetic Analysis and Principles (3rd Ed.) Robert J. Brooker, ISBN: 978-0072992786
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Learn and comprehend basic genetic concepts and Mendelian Genetics
  2. Comprehend the importance of cell cycle and divisions
  3. Discuss and interpret the extensions of genetic analysis and chromosomal changes
  4. Understand genetic mapping, Population and Quantitative Genetics
Teaching Methods Lecture presentations and class discussions. Visual materials are provided to better explain the concept. Active turorials (some of them are laboratory based) help student practice the concept.
