COURSE OBJECTIVES
To learn basic rules of inheritance in cells, individuals and populations; to understand the molecular mechanisms by which genes control growth, development and appearance of an organism.

COURSE CONTENT
LECTURES
1. Science of genetics: basic concept; areas of genetics, genetic discoveries. Mendelism and The Chromosomal Theory; rules of inheritance. Allelic interactions: dominance, incomplete dominance and codominance. 2. Genotyping interactions: epistasis. One Gene One Enzyme Hypothesis; Multiple alleles. 3. Sex determination; sex linkage; dosage compensation: Lyon hypothesis. 4. Linkage and mapping in eukaryotes. 5. Cytogenetics: variation in chromosome number. Mechanism and consequences. 6. Variation in chromosomal structure. Mechanism and consequences. 7. Molecular genetics: chemistry of the gene; gene expression: transcription and translation in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. 8. Gene mutations; mutation rates; point mutations, detection; DNA repair. Spontaneous and induced mutagenesis. 9. Linkage and mapping in prokaryotes and bacterial viruses. 10. Gene expression: control in prokaryotes. 11. The eukaryotic chromosome. 12. Gene expression: control in eukaryotes. 13. Non-Mendelian inheritance. 14. Quantitative and Evolutionary genetics. Population genetics.15. Recombinant DNA technology.
