Biol 5148 / 5148G, Human Genetics
Offered every semester (Spring and Fall)
The goals of this course are to apply the basic principles of Mendelian and molecular genetics to humans. A systematic review of human disorders, included disorders of blood, connective tissue, muscles, lysosomes, lipoproteins, transport membrane and mechanisms, amino acid metabolism, and the immune system is discussed in class. Special attention is given to diseases caused by gene mutations and chromosomal abnormalities. In addition, sex determination, genetic markers, gene mapping, and population genetics are also covered.
