Course Objectives This course aims to improve students' understanding of genetics at molecular level. It also provides information to extend their knowledge about different genetical issues and to help them thinking in an analytical way.
Textbook Textbooks: Introduction to Genetic Analysis (9th Ed.) Griffiths, Wessler, Lewontin, Carroll, ISBN:978-0-7167-6887-6. // Genetics, From Genes to Genomes (6th Ed.) Hartwell-Goldberg-Fischer-Hood, ISBN 978–1–259–70090–3 //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. Interpret and discuss the molecular structure and replication of genetic material
  2. Understand molecular basis of gene regulations in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes
  3. Comprehend basic concepts of mutations and genetic repair
  4. Discuss and comprehend recombinant DNA technologies and related genetic and social issues
Teaching Methods Lecture presentations and class discussions. Visual materials are provided to better explain the concept.
