GEN 331 - Human Genetics (lecture)


This course will examine trait inheritance and the mechanisms by which different traits propagate. This will require an analysis of Mendelian genetics and its extensions. Chromosomal mutation will be investigated, and a more in-depth analysis of replication, transcription, and translation will be offered than in past courses. A closer look at cancer will be offered, as well as a brief analysis of the ethics of biotechnology. It will address the human nature of genetics, genetic development and health and wellness areas related to how genes interplay within the human organism. Historical concepts in research and genetic developments will be explored. Additionally, concepts related to ethics and genetics, research and application will be explored. Students will learn how genes influence physical traits, physiological considerations, and issues related to health, wellness and related applications.
