1 - 10 of 10 results for: BIO 82: Genetics

BIO 82: Genetics

The focus of the course is on the basic mechanisms underlying the transmission of genetic information and on the use of genetic analysis to study biological and medical questions. Major topics will include: (1) the use of existing genetic variation in humans and other species to identify genes that play an important role in determining traits and disease-susceptibility, (2) the analysis of mutations in model organisms and their use in the investigation of biological processes and questions and (3) using genetic information for diagnosis and the potential for genetic manipulations to treat disease. Prerequisites: None, but BIO 83 is recommended.

BIO 120: Prokaryotic Biology - A Quantitative Approach (BIO 220)

To live, microbes have to successfully coordinate various cellular processes, in line with available resources and what environmental conditions demand. This course introduces quantitative advances in understanding this coordination and their consequences across scales: from molecular biology via growth to population dynamics and ecology. Dry lab sessions complement lectures to introduce computational approaches. Python based analysis tools will be introduced. Prerequisite: MATH 51 or MATH 19, 20,21. Recommended: microbiology (e.g. BIO 62 or 162) and molecular biology/biochemistry/genetics courses (e.g. BIO 82 or 83) and basic familiarity with coding.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 3 units total)

BIO 146: Genes and Disease

Students in this course will uncover key principles of genetics and molecular biology through investigation of case studies of human disease and novel therapeutic approaches in development. This course will require close reading and discussion of primary literature and will emphasize and support the development of critical skills in scientific communication. Students will utilize a variety of mediums to convey scientific information to a range of audiences in a series of projects completed during the quarter. Prerequisites: BIO 82, 83 and 86 or equivalent.

BIO 178: Microbiology Literature (BIO 278)

For advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students. Critical reading of the research literature in prokaryotic genetics and molecular biology, with particular applications to the study of major human pathogens. Classic and foundational papers in pathogenesis, genetics, and molecular biology; recent literature on bacterial pathogens such as Salmonella, Vibrio, and/or Yersinia. Diverse experimental approaches: biochemistry, genomics, pathogenesis, and cell biology. Prerequisites: Declared Biology majors must have taken BIO 82 (Genetics) and BIO 83 (Biochemistry). Enrollment for undergraduates is limited to Biology majors in junior or senior year. Co-term or Ph.D. students in basic life sciences departments such as Biology, Bioengineering, and Genetics may also enroll in BIO 278. Apply at https://forms.gle/4NTtcBdWYMqRFvGc9.

BIO 187: Mathematical Population Biology (CME 187)

Mathematical models in population biology, in biological areas including demography, ecology, epidemiology, evolution, and genetics. Mathematical approaches include techniques in areas such as combinatorics, differential equations, dynamical systems, linear algebra, probability, and stochastic processes. Math 50 or 60 series is required, and at least two of ( Bio 81, Bio 82, Bio 85) are strongly recommended.

GENE 247: Genomic approaches to the study of human disease (BIO 247)

This course will cover a range of genetic and genomic approaches to studying human phenotypic variation and disease. We will discuss the genetic basis of Mendelian and complex diseases, as well as clinical applications including prenatal testing, and pediatric and cancer diagnostics. The course will include lectures as well as critical reading and discussion of the primary literature. Prerequisite: BIO 82 or equivalent. Open to advanced undergraduate students.

HUMBIO 164: Autism Spectrum Disorder

Deficits in social communication and interaction and repetitive behaviors are the core symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects about 1% of all children and costs society an estimated $268B annually. This interactive seminar course will provide an overview of our understanding of ASD, from genetics through epidemiology, biology and treatment, and the many implications for society, including the principles and problems of diagnosis, its impact upon family and across the lifespan, and controversies regarding its etiology, perception and care. Preference will be given to upperclassmen, especially in the Human Biology program. Attendance at first class is mandatory. Enrollment is limited to 18 students by application only. Applications will be accepted on Tuesday, September 1st at midnight, consistent with the Autumn Quarter enrollment. Application is closed. Prerequisites: Human Biology core or BIO 82 and BIO 84 or consent of instructor.
