(3 credits) 3 hours lecture, 1 hour computer lab
Students will apply what they’ve learned about gene structure and cell biology in preceding courses to study cases of human diseases. The structures of the genomes from human and model systems will be compared. Online bioinformatics and proteomics exercises will allow students to take a hands-on approach toward investigating disease and evolutionary theories in the context of modern biology.
Prerequisite: Biology 2202 and Biochemistry 2201 with a grade of C- or higher.
