BIOL 3203 - Genomes

Credit(s): 3
Lecture Hour(s): 3
Lecture Hours Schedule Type: Blended, Lecture, Online
Lab Hour(s): 2

Students will apply what they’ve learned about gene structure and cell biology in preceding courses to study genomic diversity. The structures of the genomes of various organisms, from prokaryotes to eukaryotes, will be compared. Applications of genomic tools and novel discoveries about genomes will be discussed in the context of human disease. Bioinformatics exercises will allow students to take a hands-on approach toward investigating biological diversity, human disease, and evolutionary principles.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum grade of C- in BCEM 2201  and BIOL 2202  and a minimum grade of C- in one of MATH 2233 , MATH 2234 , MATH 2235  or MATH 2333 .
