200A  Principles of Genetics  (3 units)   Winter

Instructor(s): D. Toczyski       Prerequisite(s): None

Restrictions: Instructor approval required       Activities: Lecture

In-depth analysis of genetic mechanisms in selected procaryotes and eucaryotes. Topics include recombination, forward and reverse screens including suppressor and enhancer screens, mapping, epistasis analysis, RNAi, CRSIPR, meiotic and mitotic segregation.

250  Research  (1 - 8 units)   Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer

Instructor(s): Staff       Prerequisite(s): Completion of 2 quarters of Biochem 215 in the year prior

Restrictions: Students must be in year 2 or above       Activities: Independent Study, Laboratory

The course is intended to give students hands-on experience in investigation of a fundamental question in biology using modern techniques and approaches in Genetics. The scope of the research project, formulation of the hypothesis, and the necessary experimental approaches taken to test the hypothesis will be determined based on active input from the student and the lab’s Principle Investigator. The student is expected to become increasingly independent in each of these aspects of the project.
