Learn about cellular function, traits, characteristics and heritability.
This is how living organisms become what they are, how we differ from one another and from other species.
Studying genetics can feel like studying another language – the biological language of genes and DNA. It is expected that you will have some prior biological study to undertake this course.
This is a big subject -man's knowledge of genetics is growing daily - you cannot learn everything in one course; but with this course as a foundation, you are better placed to understand what you encounter, and continue your learning over the years that follow.
There are 10 lessons in this course:
- Introduction to Genetics
- The Cell and Organelles
- Interaction between Chromosomes
- Interaction between Genes
- Genetic Chemistry (DNA and Chromosomes)
- Mutations (Genomes and Mutations)
- DNA repair and Recombination
- Developmental Genetics
- Population Genetics
- Applied Genetics
Each lesson culminates in an assignment which is submitted to the school, marked by the school's tutors and returned to you with any relevant suggestions, comments, and if necessary, extra reading.
