BI 487 Research in Molecular Genetics Lab (Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: BI204 and a genetics course (BI 315, BI 319 or BI 417) or instructor permission
Satisfies the advanced experience requirement for the Biology major. Lab fee required.
The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is an important model organism for the study of intracellular processes such as cell cycle control, transcription, DNA replication, chromosome maintenance, and signal transduction. This laboratory will involve original molecular genetic research using S. pombe that involves concepts related to forward genetics and gene manipulation. This course is recommended for students interested in pursuing graduate studies or careers in biomedical research.
