Course Description

Formerly BIOL 2430

Building on fundamental knowledge of biology and genetics, students further explore life at the molecular level, specifically, the structure and function of nucleic acids, DNA replication and expression, gene structure and regulation. Topics include fundamental concepts in recombinant DNA technology, cloning and sequencing techniques and their application to the analysis of genes and geonomes. The use of computer-based manipulation and analysis of DNA sequence information as an essential tool in modern molecular genetics is also emphasized.

Students will only receive credit for one of BIOL 2430 and 3430.

Priority registration in this course is offered to students admitted to the Bachelor of Science in Bioinformatics.

Prerequisites(s): A minimum "C" grade in BIOL 2330.
