UC Course SubjectBiological Sciences
Number & Suffix: 103
Full UC Title: MARINE BIOTECHNOLOGY 
Transcript Title: MARINE BIOTECH 
UC QTR Units - Division: 3.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course examines developmental biology of fish, molecular engineering in fish, and bioinformatics using computer and web sites. The course covers fundamental issues of genetic engineering and genomics in fish, and bioinformatics necessary for future researches in the fields of marine biotechnology. Topic during the class include: embryonic development in fish; forward genetics (Mutant library, Positional cloning); reverse genetics (Knockout fish, TALEN, CRISPR/Cas9); other basic techniques essential for fish biotechnology; fish genomes; practical training using computer (BLAST search, Multiple alignment, Phylogenetic tree, PubMed, Ensembl), larval and metamorphic development; transgenic fish.
