  • Overview

    Description
    To develop an understanding of the genetic complexity of biological systems To inform students on the current state of understanding of genetic structure and function in prokaryotes and eukaryotes To provide an overview of genetic mechanisms, heredity and evolution To elaborate and differentiate gene regulatory mechanisms and evolutionary patterns in microbial genomes 

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Discuss the principles of Heredity and describe the current understanding of evolutionary principles
    2. Outline the concepts of developmental genetics and explain how a differentiated state develops from an organism s genome.

    4. Differentiate gene regulatory mechanisms and evolutionary patterns in microbial genomes

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
