Course Content

This course provides the students with a coherent view of molecular genetics from current perspective. Attention is paid to detailed treatment of gene structure and function (such as chemistry of gene, replication, transcription, translation, regulation of gene expression, gene mutation, and viral genetics), and the recent applications of molecular genetics. Prokaryotic and eukaryotic molecular genetics are given equal weight.
