Genetic principles of inheritance in plants and animals and their significance in biology and agriculture will be discussed in this self-paced Introduction to Genetics course. Topics in the whole Introduction to Genetics series include the physical basis of heredity in families and populations; introduction to chromosome biology; the molecular basis for gene expression; and modern genetic engineering tools used in animal and plant systems.

This course is specifically on gene expression, DNA analysis techniques, gene cloning, and an introduction to genetic engineering/gene therapy.
