BIOL 4960  ADVANCED GENETICS (3 credits)

An in-depth consideration of topics in genetic analysis. Through reading and discussion of primary and secondary literature in genetics, students will develop a deeper understanding of genetic principles, including mutation, recombination, complementation, gene regulation, the genetic structure of populations and the genetic contributions to complex traits, and how these principles and associated methodologies, including next-generation sequencing and high throughput "-omics" approaches, can be used to gain insight into fundamental biological questions. (Cross-listed with BIOL 8966).
