||Core Concepts in Genetics
Nature of genetic material
||What is the molecular
anatomy and function of genes and genomes?
|What are the mechanisms
by which an organism's genome is passed on to the
Transmission/ patterns of inheritance
||How does the phenomenon
of linkage affect the assortment of alleles during
|How can one deduce
information about genes, alleles, and gene functions
from analysis of genetic crosses and patterns of
expression and regulation
How can gene activity be altered in the absence of
How do genes and genomes control
||How do different types
of mutations affect genes and the corresponding
mRNAs and proteins?
||What are the processes
that can affect the frequency of genotypes and
phenotypes in a population over time?
Genetics and society
||How do the
results of molecular genetic studies in model
organisms help us understand aspects of human
genetics and genetic diseases?
