BIO 131 - Genetics in Family and Society

4 Hour(s)
General Education N1

This course will introduce non-science majors to human genetics and the scientific way of knowing. Students will learn how DNA determines traits and how traits are inherited. Students will also learn how modern genetic technologies influence the products we buy, our health and, potentially, our genetic futures. The relationship between the scientific method and our understanding of human genetics will be stressed, and students will have the opportunity to propose and perform an experiment of their own design.

Four hours lecture/discussion and three hours laboratory.
