BIO 213 General Genetics

Provides instruction on the basic principles of heredity, evolution and genetics of both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Special emphasis is placed on molecular properties of genetic material and its ability to replicate, recombine, mutate, and direct RNA and protein synthesis. Attention is also given to the functional interactions between genes, genetic regulation, and genes in populations. The lab exposes students to various techniques used in genetic experiments. Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory weekly. Prerequisite: BIO 112.
