Available to students with a basic level of understanding of cell biology and molecular genetics
An understanding of the structure and function of the genome and of individual genes is critical to our understanding of evolution and how genetic information (the genotype) gives rise to the phenotype. After exploring the nature of prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes and the methods used to study them, this subject introduces the diverse mechanisms of gene regulation in place in eukaryotes. The subject also describes how different cells differentiate and develop and introduces the molecular bases of embryology and genome evolution.
