Genetics & Genomics


  • Advanced Molecular Biology (BIO 390)
  • Two of: 378, 392, 393, 395 (at least one of which must be 378 or 393)

Through these courses, students will gain a detailed understanding of how cells encode, express, and pass on genetic information.

These classes use primary research sources to cover such cutting-edge topics as epigenetics (chromatin modification and its consequences), non-coding RNA (RNAi and micro RNAs), and application of molecular biology in biomedical research.
