BIOL 3208 - The Molecular and Genomic Revolutions in Biology

Credit(s): 3
Lecture Hour(s): 3
Lecture Hours Schedule Type: Blended, Lecture, Online
Biology is currently undergoing a revolution with the emergence of genomic science and big data. Guided by selected readings and discussion of scientific papers from various time periods, students will take a historical approach to understanding the emergence of molecular biology. To gain a deeper understanding of molecular genetics and genomics, students will explore the early discoveries (1930-1970) of molecular biology and the ‘cracking’ of the genetic code, followed by an examination of the current revolution (1970-present) in recombinant DNA and genomics.
