the Discipline Academic Advisor to enrol
Following the elucidation of the complete genome of a number of different organisms
the study of the function and regulation of individual genes has taken on greater
significance. These lectures describe the diverse mechanisms of gene regulation in
both eukaryotes and prokaryotes and the techniques used to study them. The lectures
also describe how different cells differentiate and develop and introduces the molecular
basis of embryology and genome evolution.
- to understand methods for studying gene structure and function and bioinformatics;
- to understand the diversity of genetic regulatory mechanisms;
- to understand the molecular bases of animal development;
- to understand the cellular and molecular bases of evolution;
- to understand the DNA methylation and epigenetics;
- to understand transgenic animal technologies.
- end of semester exam (60%)
- assignments (40%).
