Course Description: 

This course explores advanced (beyond those covered in GC550 core course) topics in the molecular genetics of eukaryotes. Primarily centered on mammalian genetics and using the mouse as a model system, it also covers selected topics in the yeast, Drosophila and zebra fish model systems. After a brief review of the principles of Mendelian genetics, including equal segregation and independent assortment, the course will cover (among other topics); the mouse as a genetic model, manipulating the mouse genome, bioinformatics and mouse models of human disease. The course will conclude with topics of interest in the non-mammalian systems.
