Applications of Genetics introduces the students to the field of genetics, where they learn about the theories of Mendel, Darwin, and Wallace. They will learn how traits are passed down from one generation to another. They will explore concepts of adaptation, genotype, and phenotype; and basic concepts related to cells, DNA, and RNA. Students see how the basic concepts are applied in various techniques, including metagenomics, genetically modified organisms, DNA technologies, genetic testing, and other clinical and nonclinical applications of genetics. Students will also examine how the genetic code present in all cells can be used to treat conditions. They will study the ongoing research into the usage of stem cells.
