BI205 Genetics and Evolution II F & B L & B at E & TON

Prerequisites: BI102 and BI108
Course Coordinator: Dr Vinay Narayan

We are what we are because of the DNA that we possess and the complex functions that it controls. This course starts off by taking a cellular level approach at the DNA replication and behaviour, gene structure, regulations, function and building up on the concepts of heredity, cell cycle, and genetic aberrations. It introduces students to the processes of micro and macro-evolution leading to speciation and population dynamics. This course also gives an insight into real-life application of genetics in relation to biotechnology and socio-economic issues.
