BIOMG 6330

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

BIOMG 6330 covers selected aspects of the molecular biology and biochemistry of DNA metabolism. Topics include DNA replication, genetic recombination, DNA repair, DNA transposition, somatic hypermutation, and DNA editing technologies. Students will become familiar with this work by reading papers that include genetic, biochemical, structural, and computational biology approaches. A course in biochemistry is required, and some training in genetics is highly recommended. I will assume some knowledge of the basic principles of molecular biology.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: BIOMG 3300, or BIOMG 3330, or BIOMG 3350, or BIOMG 3310/BIOMG 3320. Recommended prerequisite: BIOMG 2800.

Outcomes
