BIN 520 - Molecular Genetics and Lab

This graduate genetics course applies principles of biology to understanding DNA replication, transcription, inheritance, and molecular biology techniques for studying DNA, including next- generation sequencing and synthetic biology. Students will synthesize the information about genetic processes to elucidate the origin of genetic disorders and diseases of aging. The course includes hands-on laboratory activities and showcases all of the steps in the workflow required to prepare libraries for next-generation sequencing.
