BIOL 375 Concepts of Genetics offered in fall semesters
The recommended class textbook is "Genetic Analysis: An Integrated Approach" by Mark Sanders and John Bowman. An iClicker is required and participation will be part of the grade.
I am planning to have extra credit reading during the course of the semester and am considering a required reading list in future classes. The Fall 2013 extra credit reading list will be picked from:
- Genome: The Autobiography of a Species in 23 Chapters by Matt Ridley
- The Island of the Colorblind by Oliver Sacks
- Controlling Human Heredity: 1865 to the Present by Diane B. Paul
- Biopunk: Solving Biotech's Biggest Problems in Kitchens and Garages by Marcus Wohlsen
- The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
More details will be on the course webpage and in the syllabus.
