Course objectives
At the end of the course the students will be able to understand the special topics such as principles of non-mendelian inheritance of extranuclear DNA of different organisms; molecular organization of mitochondrial and chloroplast DNA; genetic principles of human behavioral genetics and other model animals; genetic principles of mutagenesis; genetic variability of mutagenic responses; students will be able to explain special cases of linkage mapping such as analysis of tetrades, causes of human mitochondrial disorders and results of chloroplast engineering.
