Comments Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade.

Outcomes
  • Think analytically and creatively about the applications of basic principles of inheritance and molecular genetics to interpretations of naturally occurring and experimental biological phenomena.
  • Gain basic laboratory skills in genetics, molecular biology, and data recording that are generally useful in biological and medical research.
  • Become familiar with basic tools of bioinformatics, including genome databases, genome browsers, and programs facilitating the comparison of DNA and protein sequences.
  • Develop an understanding of how the scientific method works and how analysis of raw experimental and control data is the foundation for scientific conclusions.
  • Develop an understanding of real-world biological constraints on the design and execution of experiments involving live organisms.
  • Synthesize an integrated view of inheritance extending from nucleotide sequences through gene expression and chromosome mechanics.
