MOLECULAR BIOLOGY & BIOCHEMISTRY- GENES
Country - Partner Institution - Programs: Australia - University of Sydney - 'Australian Universities'
UC Course SubjectBiochemistry
Number & Suffix: 121
Full UC Title: MOLECULAR BIOLOGY & BIOCHEMISTRY- GENES 
Transcript Title: MOLEC BIOL-GENES 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course provides comprehensive coverage of the activity of genes in living organisms, with a focus on eukaryotic and human systems. It covers the arrangement and structure of genes; how genes are expressed; promoter activity; and enhancer action. Students discuss the biochemical basis of differentiation of eukaryotic cells; the molecular basis of imprinting; epigenetics; and the role of RNA in gene expression. Additionally, the course explores the effects of damage to the genome and mechanisms of DNA repair; modern techniques for manipulating and analyzing macromolecules such as DNA and proteins and their relevance to medical and biotechnological applications; techniques such as the generation of gene knockout and transgenic mice; and genomic methods of analyzing gene expression patterns. Particular emphasis is placed on how modern molecular biology and biochemical methods have led to our current understanding of the structure and functions of genes within the human genome.
