Genetics and Genomics - (15 credits)

Genetics and Genomics module will provide you with an introduction to classical and modern molecular genetics. The module will open with a look at classical Mendelian genetics, how these principles enabled the creation of the first genetic maps and animal mapping pedigrees. Then we will review the role of nucleic acids and how gene expression can be regulated within cells and multicellular organism. Finally you will also cover the fundamental for modern molecular genetics and get some hands on experience of molecular genetic techniques.
