|dc.description.abstract||Students will acquire an understanding of the laws of genetics as applied, in
particular, to human beings.
Objective 1a. Students will demonstrate knowledge of Mendelian genetics, based on the
cellular principles of mitosis and meiosis; attention will also be directed to stem cells,
cancer, and cloning .
Objective 2a: Students will be able to extend the principles of Mendelian genetics and
to understand the rationales for the exceptions to those principles.
Objective 3a: Students will be exposed to multifactorial polygenic traits, linked genes,
non-Mendelian genetics (e.g., imprinting; mitochondrial inheritance), and behavioral
Objective 4a: Students will develop an understanding of the progression from molecular
to cellular to organismal inheritance of traits||en_US
