X143 (3 semester units in Molecular and Cell Biology)

45 hours CE credit: BRN provider 00226

An elective in the Certificate Program in the Essentials of Green Chemistry, in the Post-Baccalaureate Health Professions Program, and in the Professional Biomedical Sciences Program

Learn to integrate the most important concepts in classical and molecular genetics into an overall picture of what a gene is, how it functions, how it may be altered and how it is inherited. Study the molecular basis of gene function and mutation, Mendelian genetics, transmission systems, regulation of cellular processes, developmental genetics, cytoplasmic inheritance, population genetics and multifactoral inheritance. Learn about recent advances in biotechnology that have genetic implications, including the Human Genome Project and advances in genetic engineering technology.

Prerequisite: One year of college-level general biology for majors
