GENETICS & BREEDING
An undergraduate/graduate (400/600-levels) course covering mechanisms of inheritance, transformational technologies, and impact of genetics on society. Genetics and Breeding (G&B) is a uniquely designed course in which learning goals are achieved by examining studies of historical significance to the field. Through various teaching techniques, students will gain an understanding of the connection between fundamental research and its impact on society. Taught by professors of animal and plant science, G&B demonstrates how genetics cuts through different disciplines and is applied in breeding.
GENETIC DATA ANALYSIS
A graduate course covering fundamental principles of genetic data analysis, using examples from a range of organisms. This course emphasizes special topics in each year it is offered, such as linkage mapping, extrachromosomal inheritance, genetic diversity, quantitative genetics, population genetics, or epigenetics.
