BIOL 24100 - Biology IV: Genetics And Molecular Biology
Credit Hours: 3.00. An introduction to the principles of classical genetics and to molecular genetics. Topics covered are transmission of the genetic material (both in eukaryotes and prokaryotes); changes in the genetic material, structure, and function of the genetic material; and the manipulation of genetic material (recombinant DNA technology). Typically offered Spring.

Learning Outcomes: 1. Students demonstrate subject-matter competency, including the mastery of biological theories. 2. Students will understand the role of macromolecules in cellular processes such as DNA replication, RNA transcription, protein translation, and metabolism. 3. Students will understand the role of evolution of creating and modifying the macromolecular components of the cell, and in creating biological complexity and variability. 4. Graduates will understand how chemical and biochemical processes relate to biological function at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and higher level. 5. Students who complete the CMB BS program will have a broad understanding of the compositions and formations of cellular structures, the molecular basis underlying cellular processes, and the links between diseases and aberrant gene functions. 6. Students who complete the CMB BS program will have a broad understanding of the principles governing the development of multi-cellular animals and plants. 7. Students will exhibit proficiency in population and quantitative genetics. 8. Students will demonstrate an understanding of concepts and theories of genetics. 9. Students will demonstrate an understanding of laboratory skills used in genetics. 10. Students will exhibit proficiency in the physiology, biochemistry, and genetics of bacteria including diversity, metabolism, and gene expression regulation as well as key metabolic control mechanisms.
