This course is intended for Life Science majors or those with a strong background in the Biological Sciences.
This course may be used to fulfill the elective requirements of the Biological Sciences major.
Prerequisite: 01:119:117 or 01:119:102 Pre- or Corequisite: Genetics 01:447:380 or Genetic Analysis I 01:447:384
Completion of a course in basic statistics is recommended.
A laboratory that focuses on analysis and interpretation of genetic information. This is a computational lab, in that all genetic data are created by computer simulation. Subjects include genetic-models for, and analysis of data generated from: Mendelian inheritance, fly crosses, recombination, Hardy-Weinberg Law, quantitative genetics, reduced penetrance, and other topics.
A Sakai site will be available at the beginning of the semester
