- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- Fields of study the course is directly associated with
- there are 11 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- The aim of the course is to explain the genetic principles: non-mendelian inheritance of extranuclear DNA of different organisms, molecular organization of mitochondrial and chloroplast DNA, human behavioral genetics and other model animals, mutagenesis, genetic variability of mutagenic responses, special cases of linkage mapping such as analysis of tetrades, mitochondrial disorders and chloroplast engineering.
- Learning outcomes
- 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, to describe causes of human mitochondrial disorders and results of chloroplast engineering.
