BIOL 381 - Genetics Laboratory

This course provides hands-on experience in the field of genetics.  Classical (Mendelian) genetic crosses, genetic mapping of disease  genes, and how genes are inherited in a population are shown using computer simulations.  Molecular methods are employed to understand recombinant technology and the molecular basis of genetics.  DNA fingerprinting, locating a specific gene in the genome, and the determination of 
mutagenic substances are examples of modern experiments performed in the laboratory.
