BIO 97 GENETICS AND EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY

3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
Prerequisite: CHEM 1B , BIO 80  and BIO 81  
This course is a comprehensive survey of genetics. Through an examination of current and historical experimental evidence, students evaluate the basic tenets of molecular, transmission, and population genetics, and use the science of genetics to appraise the relationship of genetics to the processes and products of microevolution and macroevolution. Topics include molecular aspects of DNA replication and gene expression including RNA and protein biosynthesis; genetic code and organization of genome; regulation of expression of genetic information; cell division; genetic recombination and mutation in prokayotes and eukaryotes; and biochemical evolution as it relates to microevolution and macroevolution.
