This topic presents basic principles of inheritance, applications of Mendel's principles, testing genetic hypotheses and Mendelian principles in human genetics.
The Chromosomal Basis of Mendelism
This topic presents the chromosomal basis of Mendelism. It includes chromosomes, sex-linked in human beings, sex chromosome and determination, and dosage compensation.
Linkage, Crossing Over and Chromosome Mapping
This topic presents linkage, recombination, crossing over and chromosome mapping.
The Genetics of Bacteria and Their Viruses
This topic presents the genetics of viruses, the genetic of bacteria and mechanism of genetic exchange in bacteria.
Mutation and DNA Repair
This topic presents mutation and DNA repair of bacteria. It includes basic features of the process, phenotypic effects and molecular basis of mutation. Types of DNA repair mechanisms in bacteria will be also discussed here.
The Techniques of Molecular Genetics
This topic presents techniques of molecular genetics which includes basic techniques used to identify, amplify, and clone genes; construction and screening of DNA libraries; the molecular analysis of DNA, RNA and protein.
Regulation of Gene Expression in Prokaryotes and Their Viruses
This topic presents regulation of gene expression in prokaryotes particularly the lactose and tryptone operons in E. coli.
This topic presents the theory of allele frequencies, the Hardy-Weinberg principle and its applications and exceptions.
