||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
Available to students only with permission of the Head of Discipline of Biochemistry
and Molecular Biology.
An understanding of the function and regulation of individual genes is critical to
our understanding of how genetic information (genotype) is transformed into the shape,
size and type of an individual organism (its phenotype). This subject explores the
diverse mechanisms of regulation in both prokaryote and eukaryote systems and the
techniques used to explore them. The subject also describes how different cells differentiate
and develop and introduces the molecular basis of embryology and genome evolution.
- To understand how genetic information is coverted into the appearance of an organism;
- To understand the mechanism responsible for the control of gene expression in a model
- To compare gene expression in organisms.
