BIO 520 — Genomes and Chromosomes

Semester hours: 4 (3R, 3L)   Offered: I (AY)    Instructor: Brockhouse

The chromosome is the physical basis of genetics in Eukaryotes, and controls major aspects of gene regulation. In this course, we will examine the structure, function and behavior of eukaryotic chromosomes. The accompanying laboratory will emphasize modern genome-wide approach, including student participation in a genome project focusing on disease transmitting flies.
