Perspective of Frontiers I-V Genetics: lecture, Discussions 0.5Credit 2016 October-March
This course consists of short lecture series (projects) each of which providing fundamental principles at the boudary of biology with another field.
It is designed to provide basis for students to explore the frontiers of new fields.
Credits will be given when students complete two of the following lecture series; Genetics, eBioscience Primer
1. To understand the historical background and the aim of Genetics
2. To understand the basic strategies and methods used in Genetics
3. To understand to what extent our behaviors and diseases are defined by our genes, and the interplay between genes and other factors
The grades will be A, B, C, and D, which are determined by the quality of the paper, which must be submitted to the lecturer by the provided deadline. The subject(s) of the paper must be one of the 3 aspects that are presented in the above Course Objectives.
Basic concepts, approaches and techniques in Genetics will be outlined and discussed. In addition, the lecture focuses on how our behaviors and diseases are controlled by our genes.
