MD GENET/GENETICS/ZOOLOGY 562 — HUMAN CYTOGENETICS
Fundamental principles of cytogenetics and special problems of human cytogenetics for biology and medical students.
MD GENET/GENETICS 565 — HUMAN GENETICS
Principles, problems, and methods of human genetics. Surveys aspects of medical genetics, biochemical genetics, molecular genetics, cytogenetics, quantitative genetics, and variation as applied to humans.
MD GENET/BIOCHEM/GENETICS 620 — EUKARYOTIC MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
This course focuses on the basic molecular mechanisms that regulate DNA, RNA, and protein metabolism in eukaryotic organisms. This course is intended for advanced undergraduates and first year graduate students with a firm knowledge of basic biochemistry.
MD GENET/GENETICS 677 — ADVANCED TOPICS IN GENETICS
Contents vary; consideration of subjects not included in the curriculum.
MD GENET 699 — INDEPENDENT READING
MD GENET/GENETICS 707 — GENETICS OF DEVELOPMENT
A research-level analysis of the current status of the investigation of processes controlling differential gene activity and cellular behavior. The major emphasis is genetic. In successive years, the focus moves from the gene to the cell to the organism.
MD GENET/GENETICS 708 — METHODS AND LOGIC IN GENETIC ANALYSIS
Contemporary issues in genetic, developmental, cell, and molecular biology are addressed in a discussion format. Invited speakers give research lectures and reading material is taken from the primary literature. The discussion focuses on evaluating genetic approaches to biological problems.
MD GENET/GENETICS/POP HLTH 888 — PUBLIC HEALTH GENOMICS
Public health genomics uses knowledge gained from genetic and molecular research along with a consideration of ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) to prevent disease and improve the health of the population. Students enrolled in this course will be provided an introduction to public health genomics through a review of fundamental principles of genetics, followed by lectures and discussions on the use of genetic information in clinical and research settings and its implications for disease management and prevention. Students will also gain an awareness of policies that guide public health and will be able to discuss current ethical, legal, and social implications of these policies. These learning objectives will be met through readings and videos, lectures, and discussions of recent journal articles and current topics in public health genomics.
MD GENET 990 — RESEARCH
MD GENET 993 — SEMINAR IN GENETICS
Sections deal with various aspects of genetics: Drosophila, maize, immunogenetics, developmental genetics, or other special topics. Students may enroll in two or more sections if they wish.
MD GENET 999 — INDEPENDENT WORK
