  • Overview

    This module will be an advanced course on the transmission of genetic information. The primary focus will be to
    obtain a detailed understanding of the general and more specific mechanisms involved in the control of gene
    expression in both prokaryotic and in eukaryotic systems. The course will begin with the general mechanism of
    transcription, RNA polymerases and the various classes of transcription factors. Thereafter, specific aspects
    pertaining to general and specialised mechanisms of gene expression and transcriptional regulation in various
    prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems will be examined.This module is highly recommended for students intending to
    take GENE40030 in Stage 4.

    Note: Can be taken in conjunction with Biology Modules

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.

Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
