Required Texts

Molecular Biology of the Cell, Alberts B, Johnson A, Lewis J, et al Genes and Disease, National Center for Biotechnology Information Both texts are freely available through NCBI Bookshelf

Course Goals:

The goals of Molecular Genetics are:

To aid students in becoming proficient in critical thinking and problem solving about cell and molecular biology through analysis of and engagement in the process of science; To develop and practice science communication proficiency. 

Student Learning Objectives:

Students will interpret DNA sequence and organization from molecular perspectives, analyze molecular genetics problems and make implications and draw conclusions from the analyses, apply molecular genetic research technologies to an actual research question.  

Course Learning Outcomes: 

Students complete two research projects in molecular genetics and communicate their experimental findings for publication.
