BIOMG 3800

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

An extension of BIOMG 2800 in which selected topics will be explored in greater depth. The course will not attempt to cover the breadth of Genetics and Genomics. Through readings, small class discussions, and problem solving, students will develop the background for understanding selected studies from the primary research literature, chiefly on model eukaryotic experimental organisms.

When Offered Spring.
