Genetics & Genomics

 The following courses are required in order to receive a Degree in the Program in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Genetics and Genomics:

The choice of the course is up to the student, however, one of them must be BIOL_SCI 378 or BIOL_SCI 393. If the student chooses to take both BIOL_SCI 378 and BIOL_SCI 393, this would fulfill the requirement for the concentration as well.

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.
