BIOL 4870 Research in Molecular Genetics Lab (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is an important model organism for the study of intracellular processes such as cell cycle control, transcription, DNA replication, chromosome maintenance, and signal transduction. This laboratory will involve original molecular genetic research using S. pombe that involves concepts related to forward genetics and gene manipulation. This course is recommended for students interested in pursuing graduate studies or careers in biomedical research.


Instructor(s): Charles Hoffman
