Full UC Title: MOLECULAR GENETICS 
Transcript Title: MOLECULAR GENETICS 
UC QTR Units - Division: 4.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course introduces molecular genetic principles, starting with basic properties of genes and genomes and extending to the complex, hierarchical interactions, fundamental to living organisms. It examines the ways molecular genetics is applied to the analysis of complex systems, including advances that reveal basic features of gene regulation during cell growth and differentiation, and in response to a changing environment, as well as developments that are more related to commercial and medical applications. The course focuses on genetic foundations, chromatin and chromosomes, genomics, genome maintenance, and gene regulation and analysis. Topics include Mendelian and non-Mendelian inheritance; transformation, transduction, and conjugation; recombination and complementation; mutational analysis; genetic mapping and linkage; karyotypes; translocations, inversions, deletions, and duplications; aneuploidy and polyploidy structure; genome structure; physical mapping; repeated DNA and gene families; gene identification; transposable elements; DNA replication, damage, repair, modification, recombination, and gene conversion; cis-acting regulatory elements; trans-acting regulatory factors; gene rearrangements and amplifications; genetic manipulation of bacteria (transposons and plasmids); and the human genome project.
