BIOL 344 - Genetics

(4 cr) Mechanisms of inheritance, the nature of genes, and genetic systems are examined in relation to the capacities of living systems for continuity, self-regulation, and adaptive change. Molecular, cellular, and organismal reproduction are considered as processes of information storage, transfer, and generation. The development of the gene concept is traced from its origin as a mathematical abstraction, through progressive definition as a unit of nuclear structure and function, to final characterization as nucleic acid. Prerequisites: BIOL 305 .
