BIOL 5060 Recombinant DNA Technology (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course will describe the theory and practice of recombinant DNA technology and its application within molecular biology research. Topics will include the cloning of genes from various organisms, plasmid construction, transcriptional and translational gene fusions, nucleic acid probes, site-directed mutagenesis, polymerase chain reaction, and transgenic animals. The goal of the course is to make the research-oriented student aware of the wealth of experimental approaches available through this technology.

Instructor(s): Charles S. Hoffman

Prerequisites: BIOL2040. With permission of the Instructor. BIOL 2040 and additional coursework in molecular cell biology (such as BIOL 3040, BIOL 4140 or BIOL 4400) or genetics (BIOL 3150, BIOL 3190, or BIOL 4170) or instructor permission.
