GG3101 - Advanced Genetics and Genomics

Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by:

This subject covers the latest advances in genetic and genomic analyses with a focus on genomes (not simply genes in isolation). Lectures cover topics including genome mapping, genome anatomy, genome function and analysis, genetic control of development, functional genomics and genome evolution.

Learning Outcomes

  • to understand methods for mapping genes and genomes;
  • to understand the cellular and molecular basis of gene regulation;
  • to understand the diversity of genome structures and their regulation;
  • to understand the molecular basis of animal development;
  • to understand the mechanisms of genome evolution;
  • to understand bioinformatic tools and their use in genome analysis.
