Course Description for Molecular Genetics
Prerequisite: PCB 3023C, BCH 4033, PCB 3063C. This course will detail the molecular basis of inheritance in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Topics will cover the structure and function of DNA, including replication, repair, and recombination. Expressions of genes including transcription, translation, and processing of RNA will be covered, as well as regulation of these events. These processes will then be incorporated into the role of gene function in signal transduction and development.
