BI 506 Recombinant DNA Technology (Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: BI204 and additional course work in molecular cell biology (such as BI304, BI414 or BI440) or genetics ( BI315, BI319 or BI417) or instructor permission.
This course will describe the theory and practice of recombinant DNA technology and its application within molecular biology research. Topics will include the cloning of genes from various organisms, plasmid construction, transcriptional and translational gene fusions, nucleic acid probes, site-directed mutagenesis, polymerase chain reaction, and transgenic animals. The goal of the course is to make the research-oriented student aware of the wealth of experimental approaches available through this technology.
