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