GC 501 Advanced Genetics

4 credits
This course is designed to build on a strong genetics background. It will provide a common background in molecular genetics by reviewing the research that has led to our current understanding of molecular genetics and by introducing and discussing the major theories and research advances in genetics. Applications to human medical genetics through discussion of relevant case studies will be incorporated. The content of this course will facilitate an understanding of the application of molecular techniques in genetic testing and diagnosis as these topics are discussed in other courses in the genetic counseling program. This course will also serve as the necessary foundation of knowledge to understand material in other courses such as Cancer Genetics, Reproductive Genetics, Biochemical Genetics, and Medical Genetics.
