BIOL 2200 - Genetics

This course introduces principles of heredity and variation in living organisms, including a study of the nature of the genetic material and its influence on heredity, evolution and artificial selection of organisms. The process of gene regulation and the role of gene expression on the development and environmental response of organisms will be evaluated as it relates to modern day applications in biology, agriculture, and medicine.

BIOL 1010 General Biology I with C or better

Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of BIOL 2200 Genetics, the student will:

  1. use Mendelian genetics to predict the inheritance patterns of specific alleles.
  2. analyze the organizational structure of chromosomes.
  3. delineate the roles of the enzymes and RNA molecules involved in DNA replication and protein synthesis.
  4. identify the flow of cellular information that results in the regulation of gene expression.
  5. evaluate the impact of the different processes of evolution on an individual’s and population’s genetic make-up.
  6. outline the fundamental steps of DNA sequencing, amplification and genetic engineering.
  7. conduct molecular biology protocols accurately and safely.
  8. manipulate online and localized databases to organize, track, share, and analyze genomic and proteomic information.
  9. identify the benefits, risks, and regulations of recombinant DNA technologies.
