This rigorous and discussion course will cover the principles
governing the transmission of specific traits to progeny, including
both eukaryotes and prokaryotes. Analyses will be at the level of
the individual and population. Mendelian genetics and modern
molecular genetics will be discussed. Further understanding of these
issues will be drawn from the study of model organisms, genome
projects, and current news topics. In addition to attending class,
attendance to a one-hour discussion group each week is mandatory.
Weekly assignments: A problem set due each week. Exams/papers:
Three exams and a final.
