BIOL 2140  GENETICS (4 credits)

This course provides students with a foundational understanding of genetics. First, students will learn to analyze patterns of Mendelian inheritance. Then, they will develop molecular explanations for these patterns and understandings of how gene genes are defined and identified. They will also learn how variations in inheritance patterns arise, using analytical and statistical tools to distinguish between variations on inheritance patterns and to analyze quantitative traits. Then, students will focus in on the nucleus to examine the structure, organization, packaging, and inheritance of chromosomes. They will consider the consequences of genetic recombination on inheritance patterns and for genetic mapping.

Prerequisite(s): Prerequisites are BIOL 1450 and 1750, CHEM 1140 or 1180 or the equivalent or permission of the instructor. Must enroll in discussion.


The biology degree allows students to explore biological topics that span the breadth of biology. Diverse course offerings enable students to obtain broad expertise or to specialize within the discipline. The biology major prepares students for a wide range of career choices.
