This course in contemporary genetic analysis emphasizes experimental approaches to biological questions in a variety of eukaryotic organisms. The course includes discussion of the application of methodologies spanning a wide range of genetics, including classical, molecular, quantitative and genome-wide approaches. Primary scientific literature is investigated to understand the development and application of these methods. The course is intended to provide a good working understanding of current genetic techniques, how to select appropriate approaches to modern biological problems, and how to interpret results of genetic analyses. This course is a Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) course in certain programs, and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK.

Prereq: BIO 304  (Introductory Genetics) or equivalent or consent of the instructor is required. BIO 315  (Cell Biology) or equivalent is recommended, but not required.
