Laboratory Hours: 3

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 130  and BIOL 135  (C or better in both)

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

This course covers the topics of Mendelian genetics, cytogenetics, DNA replication, molecular genetics, population genetics. Laboratory will include an inquiry- based study of genetics including model organism population experiments.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis.
  2. Students will apply scientific data, concepts, and models in one of the natural sciences.
  3. Describe the fundamental concepts of genetics including Mendelian genetics, cytogenetics,DNA replication, molecular genetics, population genetics, and cancer genetics.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of how to use peer reviewed literature for scientific research.
